 Thebez
    brightness, a place some 11 miles north-east of Shechem, on the
    road to Scythopolis, the modern Tabas. Abimelech led his army
    against this place, because of its participation in the
    conspiracy of the men of Shechem; but as he drew near to the
    strong tower to which its inhabitants had fled for safety, and
    was about to set fire to it, a woman cast a fragment of
    millstone at him, and "all to brake his skull" i.e., "altogether
    brake," etc. His armourbearer thereupon "thrust him through, and
    he died" (Judg. 9:50-55).

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)
