Field of Blood

.

Acelʹdama, the piece of land bought by the chief priests with the money which Judas threw down in the temple; so called because it was bought with blood-money. (Matt. xxvii. 5; Acts i. 19.)

⁂ The battle-field of Cannæ (B.C. 216) is so called because it was especially sanguinary.
