SANSANNAH

san-san'-a (cancannah; [Sansanna], or Sethennak):

One of the uttermost cities in the Negeb of Judah (Joshua 15:31), identical with Hazar-susah (Joshua 19:5), one of the cities of Simeon, and almost certainly the same as Hazar-susim (1 Chronicles 4:31). It cannot be said to have been identified with any certainty, though Simsim, "a good-sized village with well and pool, surrounded by gardens and having a grove of olives to the north," has been suggested (PEF, III, 260, Sh XX).
