The modern representative of this, Khurbet Attir, lies four and a quarter miles south-east of ed-Dhoheriyeh, and nine and three quarter miles north of Tell Milh (Moladah), and is thus described in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (3:408): "Foundations, and heaps of stones; a great many caves; a ruined masonry tomb; several fallen pillar- shafts and cisterns. There is a kubbeh [dome] at the ruin, which stands on a knoll. Many of the caves have masonry arches to the doors. A large building remains, four courses of the wall being left. Below the ruins on the hill-side is a large oil-press."
