Sheepgate, The:

one of the gates of Jerusalem as rebuilt by Nehemiah (Nehemiah 3:1, 32; 12:39). It stood between the tower of Meah and the chamber of the corner (Nehemiah 3:1; 3:32) or gate of the guard‐house (Nehemiah 12:39). Authorized Version, "prison‐gate." The latter seems to have been at the angle formed by the junction of the wall of the city of David with that of the city of Jerusalem proper, having the sheep‐gate on the north of it. The position of the sheep‐gate may therefore have been on or near that of the Bab el Kattanin.
