IJON . A town in the north part of the mountains of Naphtali, noticed in 1 Kings 15:20 (= 2 Chronicles 16:4 ) as taken by Benhadad. It was also captured and depopulated by Tiglath-pileser ( 2 Kings 15:29 ). The name survives in Merj ‘AyÃ»n , a plateau N. W. of Dan. The most important site in this plateau is Tell DibbÃ®n , which may be the site of Ijon.
