Adida

ADIDA [SMITH]

a fortified town near Jerusalem, probably the HADID of (Ezra 2:33) and referred to in 1Ma 12:38

ADIDA [ISBE]

ADIDA - ad'-i-da (Adida). A town of the Benjamin tribe near Lod and Ono located upon a hill facing the "plain country" of Judea, rebuilt and fortified by Simon Maccabee (1 Macc 12:38), who later encamped here to meet the army of Tryphon (1 Macc 13:13; Ant, XIII, vi, 5). It was also here that Aretas, king of Arabia, met Alexander Janneus in battle and defeated him (Ant., XIII, xv, 2). Perhaps the El-Haditheh of today located about three miles east of Lydda or Lod.

See HADID.
