At the end of his eight years' government;
and was buried at Pirathon, in the land of Ephraim, in the mount of the
in the place where he was born, and from whence he had the name of a Pirathonite; and this was in the tribe of Ephraim, and the particular spot was Mount Amalek; so called either from the name of the person to whom it belonged, or because the Amalekites formerly dwelt in it; or rather because of some remarkable advantage got over them at this place: here, Josephus says F5, this judge had a magnificent funeral.
