Antipatris



A titular see of Palestine, whose episcopal list is known from 449 to 451 (Gams,( 452). It was built by Herod the Great in honour of his father Antipatris, and is mentioned in Acts 23:31. "Its ancient name and site," says Smith, "are still preserved by a Muslim village of considerable size . . . about three hours north of Jaffa."

SMITH, Dict. of Greek and Roman Geogr., I, 147; JACQUIER, in BIF., Dict de la Bible (1891), s.v.
