tā´a - nath - shı̄´lō ( תּאנת שׁלה , ta'ănath shilōh ; Codex Vaticanus Θηνασὰ καὶ Σελλησά , Thēnasá kaı́ Sellēsá , Τηναθσηλώ , Tēnathsēlṓ ): A town on the border of the territory of Ephraim named between Michmethath and Janoah ( Joshua 16:6 ). According to Eusebius, Onomasticon (s.v. "Thena") it lay about 10 Roman miles East of Neapolis, on the road to the Jordan. Ptolemy speaks of Thena, probably the same place, as a town in Samaria ( Joshua 16:1-10 :16, 5). It may be identified with Ta‛nā , a village about 7 miles Southeast of Nāblus . Yānūn , the ancient Janoah, lies 2 miles to the South. A R oman road from Neapolis to the Jordan valley passed this way. At Ta‛nā there are "foundations, caves, cisterns and rockcut tombs" (PEFM , II, 245). This identification being quite satisfactory, the Talmudic notion that Taanath-shiloh was the same place as Shiloh may be dismissed (Jerusalem Talmud, Meghillāh , i).
