Eve of Pentacost
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
tad´mor , tad´mōr ( תּדמר , tadhmōr ): A city built by Solomon in the wilderness ( 2 Chronicles 8:4 ), the Roman Palmyra. Tadmor is the native name and is found on inscriptions. It occurs also in the Ḳerē of 1 Kings 9:18 , where the Kethı̄bh or consonants read "Tamar" (compare Ezekiel 47:19; Ezekiel 48:28 ). It is famous in Arabian as well as in Hebrew literature, and enters Roman history in connection with Zenobia and Longinus. The inscriptions, which belong for the most part to the latter period (266-73 AD), have been published by Dawkins and Wood and also by M. Waddington and the Duc de Luynes. Popular works on the subject are An Account of Palmyra and Zenobia by W. Wright, and The Last Days and Fall of Palmyra by W. Ware. See TAMAR .
