ha - dad - rim´on , had - ad - rim´on ( הדד רמון , hădhadh rimmōn ): A name which occurs, along with Megiddon, in Zechariah 12:11 . It was long thought that this was a place in the plain of Megiddo, and that the mourning referred to was that for Josiah, slain in battle with Pharaoh-necoh (2 Kings 23:29 ). This last, however, was certainly at Jerusalem. Jerome (Comm. on Zec ) identifies Hadadrimmon with Maximianopolis, a village near Jezreel, probably Legio, the ancient Megiddo. Possibly, however, the form "Hadadrimmon" has arisen through the combination of two divine names; and the weeping may be that for Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14 ), with whom the old Semitic deity had become confused in the popular mind.
