    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.
