Askar. Place containing Jacob's well, John 4:5. Sychar has been identified with Shechem. It is now commonly located at the site of the village of 'Askar, on the eastern slope of Ebal, almost two miles from Nablus (Neapolis), about a half mile N of the traditional Jacob's well, and a short distance SE of Shechem. Eusebius (4th Cent AD) mentions a Sychar distinct from Shechem, lying before Neapolis, the present Nablus. In spite of ecclesiastical tradition, the name Sychar should have remained the location of ancient Shechem. Because of the uncertainty of the precise location Neapolis can also be identified with Shechem.
