Pithom (pî'thom), house or temple, of Tum, who was the sun-god of Heliopolis, a "treasure city," or depot of provisions, built by the Israelites in Goshen. Exodus 1:11. M. Naville has identified Pithom with Pa-Tum, "setting sun," and with Tel el-Maskhûta, where he found remarkable ruins, brick grain-chambers, and similar evidences of a "store city."
