Dalmanutha

Additional Links
A place on the west of the Sea of Galilee, mentioned only in Mark 8:10 . In the parallel passage it is said that Christ came "into the borders of Magdala" (Matthew 15:39 ). It is plain, then, that Dalmanutha was near Magdala, which was probably the Greek name of one of the many Migdols (i.e., watch-towers) on the western side of the lake of Gennesaret. It has been identified in the ruins of a village about a mile from Magdala, in the little open valley of 'Ain-el-Barideh, "the cold fountain," called el-Mejdel, possibly the "Migdal-el" of Joshua 19:38 .
