Due to my finding that Hebron, Ziph, and Socoh are in separate 7th C BC districts, and might have been their capitals, I presently propose that MMST is an unidentified town in the Halhul district. Due to lack of significant finding at Azekah (but we’ll see in the upcoming excavations) and great quantities in the North, I suggest looking to the north (NE?) of Bayt Umar.
