Tadmor (tăd'môr). Heb. Tamar, palms. A city in the wilderness, built by Solomon. 1 Kings 9:18, R. V., "Tamar;" 2 Chronicles 8:4. There is no other Scripture mention of this city. It has usually been identified with the famous city of Palmyra. Palmyra occupied the most favorable position on the great caravan route between the rich cities of the East and the ports of the Mediterranean. Palmyra was mentioned by Pliny, Josephus, Jerome, and other early writers. The ruins extend over a plain about three or four miles in circuit.
