JOKNEAM. A royal Canaanite city ‘in Carmel’ ( Joshua 13:22 ), on the boundary of Zebulun ( Joshua 19:11 ), ‘the brook’ before it being the Kishon. It was assigned to the Merarite Levites ( Joshua 21:34 ). It is probably identical with Cyamon of Jdt 7:5 . The Onomasticon places ‘Cimona’ 6 Roman miles N. of Legio, on the road to Ptolemais. This points definitely to Tell Kaimûn , a striking mound about 7 miles N.W. of el-Lejjûn , with remains of ancient buildings.
