Abila, distinguished as Abila in the Decapolis (Greek: Ἄβιλα Δεκαπολεος, Abila Dekapoleos) and also known for a time as Seleucia (Greek: Σελεύκεια, Seleúkeia), was an ancient city in the Decapolis; the site, now referred to as Quwaylibah (Arabic: قويلبة‎) is occupied by two tells (Tell al-Abila and Tell Umm al-Amad) and the village of Hartha, approximately 13 km (8 mi) north-northeast of Irbid, Jordan. The site is 25 km (16 mi) east of the Sea of Galilee and 4 km (2 mi) south of the Yarmouk River. The name "Abila" is derived from the Semitic word Abel (in Hebrew, "meadow" and in Arabic, "green growth").
