Additional Links

Dagon was a Canaanite Baal god, and biblical references to it are all connected with the Philistines. There were temples for the worship of Dagon in the Philistine towns of Gaza and Ashdod (Judges 16:21-23; 1 Samuel 5:1-5; see also 1 Chronicles 10:10). (For details see BAAL; PHILISTIA.)
