"A town in the tribe of Ephraim, mentioned only in the New" "Testament (Acts 9:32, 35, 38) as the scene of Peter's miracle in" healing the paralytic AEneas. It lay about 9 miles east of "Joppa, on the road from the sea-port to Jerusalem. In the Old" Testament (1 Chr. 8:12) it is called Lod. It was burned by the "Romans, but was afterwards rebuilt, and was known by the name of" Diospolis. Its modern name is Ludd. The so-called patron saint "of England, St. George, is said to have been born here."
