Resen: Head of the stream; bridle, one of Nimrod's cities
(Genesis 10:12) "between
Nineveh and Calah." It has been supposed that the four cities named
in this verse were afterwards combined into one under the name of
Nineveh (q.v.). Resen was on the east side of the Tigris. It is
probably identified with the mound of ruins called Karamless.
