Lydda (Lod). Ludd. Greek name of Lod, 1 Macc. 11:34; Acts 9:32-38. Lydda was a town about 11 miles SE of Joppa, called Lod in the OT (1 Chron 8:12), and modern Israelis have reverted to the OT name. It is located in the midst of a rich and fertile plain. It was one of the most westernly of the Jewish settlements after the Exile, the site of which is described as Gehaharashim, the valley of the smiths or craftsmen. It was here that Peter healed the paralytic and secured many converts (Acts 9:32-35). It was not Jewish, but pagan, under the name Diospolis.
