From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    dwelling, the Dora of the Romans, an ancient royal city of the
    Canaanites (Josh. 11:1, 2; 12:23). It was the most southern
    settlement of the Phoenicians on the coast of Syria. The
    original inhabitants seem never to have been expelled, although
    they were made tributary by David. It was one of Solomon's
    commissariat districts (Judg. 1:27; 1 Kings 4:11). It has been
    identified with Tantura (so named from the supposed resemblance
    of its tower to a tantur, i.e., "a horn"). This tower fell in
    1895, and nothing remains but debris and foundation walls, the
    remains of an old Crusading fortress. It is about 8 miles north
    of Caesarea, "a sad and sickly hamlet of wretched huts on a
    naked sea-beach."
