MILLO. A place near Shechem (the name of which would be better rendered Beth-millo , without translating the first element [‘house of Millo,’ AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] ]), quite unknown, the inhabitants of which were associated in the coronation of Abimelech ( Judges 9:6 ; Judges 9:20 ). Joash was slain at a ‘Beth-millo, on the way that goeth down to Silla’ ( 2 Kings 12:20 ). Whether this be the same place, or whether (perhaps more likely) it was somewhere near Jerusalem, and (if so) where or what it may have been, are questions to which no answer can be given. On the ‘Millo’ of 2 Samuel 5:8 , 1 Kings 11:27 etc., see Jerusalem, II, § 2.
