SUCHE

SUCHE (τὸ Σούχου φρουρίον, Strab. xvi. p.770), the SUCHIM of the Hebrews (2 Chron. 12.3), and the modern Suachim, was a harbour on the western coast of the Red Sea, just above the bay of Adule, lat. 16° N. It was occupied by the Aegyptians and Greeks successively as a fort and trading station; but the native population of Suche were the Sabae Aethiopians.
