Fuller's fountain, so named because here the fullers were wont to cleanse their cloths by treading them with their feet. This is believed to be the "well of Nehemiah," now called Bir Eyub, Job's well. It is in the valley of the Kidron, just below its junction with the valley of the son of Hinnom, on the southeast corner of Jerusalem, Joshua 15:7; 18:16 . It is mentioned in the Bible in connection with the conspiracy of Absalom, 2 Samuel 17:17 , and afterwards with that of Adonijah, 1 Kings 1:9 . This well is situated in what is now the prettiest and most fertile spot around Jerusalem. It is one hundred and twenty-five feet deep; is walled up with large squared stones, which on one side rise form an arch, and is apparently of great antiquity.
