  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Ahava 
  water,  the  river  (Ezra  8:21)  by  the  banks  of  which  the  Jewish 
  exiles  assembled  under  Ezra  when  about  to  return  to  Jerusalem 
  from  Babylon.  In  all  probability  this  was  one  of  the  streams  of 
  Mesopotamia  which  flowed  into  the  Euphrates  somewhere  in  the 
  north-west  of  Babylonia.  It  has  however,  been  supposed  to  be 
  the  name  of  a  place  (Ezra  8:15)  now  called  Hit,  on  the 
  Euphrates,  east  of  Damascus.
