      Dear George, 

      Can you please tell us on what you base the identification? 
      I am also interested in the location of the river Ahava.

      Many thanks

      Ahava is ~100 mi wnw of Babylon.  Casiphia is in the area.

      Dear All,
      Does anyone know where the River Ahava is? (Ezra 8:15,21)
      Also, does anyone know of another place Casiphia other than the one which has been located on the Upper Zab River? That one seems rather far out of Ezra’s way if he is really on the way from Babylon to Judah.
      Thanks everyone for any help.
      Liz
