John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Judges 10:2

And he judged Israel twenty three years, and died
He did not take upon him to be king, as Abimelech did, but acted as a judge, in which office he continued twenty three years, and faithfully discharged it, and died in honour:

and was buried in Shamir;
the place where he executed his office. It is said F20, that in the first year of Tola, the son of Puah, Priamus reigned in Troy.
