Name of a mountain. It is also called Thaborion.
Greek Original:
*qabw/r: o)/noma o)/rous. le/getai kai\ *qabw/rion.
This 'Thabor' is the Mt. Tabor of the Old Testament; also called Atabyrion or Itabyrion (iota 733) in Greek sources, after the city founded there by Antiochus III in 218 BCE. It is an isolated mountain (588m.) in the NE corner of the Yizreel plain, east of Nazareth, in the region known as lower Galilee. Origen and Jerome believed, and ecclesiastical tradition holds, that it was the site of Jesus' transfiguration (Mark 9:2ff.); but the identification has been disputed (see web address 1).
