Ἐλευθερόπολις). A city of Palestine, sixteen Roman miles northeast from Ascalon, and twenty miles southwest from Jerusalem. Its earlier name was Bethogabris (Βαιτογαβρά). In the days of Eusebius and Jerome, however, it was an important and flourishing city. In modern Latin, Eleutheropolis is the name given to Freistadtl in Hungary, and to Freibourg and Freiburg.
