Hammon

ham´on ( חמּון , ḥammōn , "glowing"):

(1) A place on the seaward frontier of Asher, named with Rehob and Kanah (Joshua 19:28 ), to be sought, therefore, not far from Tyre. The most probable identification so far suggested is with Umm el‛Amūd , "mother of the column" (or ‛Awāmı̄d , "columns"), at the mouth of Wādy Ḥāmūl , on the shore, about 10 miles South of Tyre. An inscription found by Renan shows that the place was associated with the worship of Ba‛al Ḥammān ( CIS , I, 8).

(2) A city in Naphtali, given to the Gershonite Levites (1 Chronicles 6:76 ). It is identical with Hammath (Joshua 19:35 ), and probably also with Hammoth-dor (Joshua 21:32 ).
