dc.description.abstract This essay argues that Saul’s encounter with the medium was located by the author at Endor because of the place’s proximity to Mount Tabor. In addition to allusions to Tabor’s sanctity in the Hebrew Bible, the etymology of Tabor, the Phoenician History, and the Rhodian cult of Zeus Atabyrios are marshalled in support of this argument. en_ZA
