Holman Bible Dictionary
(tad' mawr) Place name of uncertain meaning. A city in northern Palestine built by Solomon (2 Chronicles 8:4
), probably to control a caravan route. Early Hebrew scribes read Tadmor as the city instead of Tamar of the written text in 1 Kings 9:18
. The city enjoyed prosperity at various periods, but especially so during Solomon's reign and again in the third century A.D., shortly before it was destroyed. The site has been identified with Palmyra, a great Arabian city, located about 120 miles northeast of Damascus.
