Calneh, Calno

Resource Toolbox

CALNEH, CALNO . 1 . Calneh is associated in Genesis 10:10 with Babylon, Erech, and Accad as the earliest cities of Shinar. The Talmudic assertion that ‘Calneh means Nippur’ receives some support from the age and importance of Nippur, but it is not known that this was ever the name of that city. Kulunu , the early name of an important city near Babylon, may be meant. 2 . Calneh, linked with Hamath and Gath in Amos 6:2 , is probably the Kulnia (Kullani) associated with Arpad and Hadrach, Syrian cities, in the Assyrian ‘tribute’ lists, Kullanhu now six miles from Arpad. 3 . Calno, compared with Carchemish in Isaiah 10:9 , is probably the same as No. 2 .
