Precise Coordinates NotesI can’t locate this point; McKinny, Historical Geography of the Administrative Division of Judah (2014) (page 143) notes that it doesn’t appear on any maps; Palestine Open Maps has an "As Sabahiya" neighborhood, but Wikipedia suggests that this name is a coincidence; similarly, the nearby modern Kiryat HasSavyonim and Savyon (Wikipedia) are also, apparently, coincidences; there’s also Khirbet esh Shamiya (Palestine Open Maps and Archaeological Survey of Israel), which is also a stretch
