Ba´al-Me´on (Numbers 32:38; 1 Chronicles 5:8; otherwise Beth-Meon, Jeremiah 48:23, and Beth-Baal-Meon, Joshua 13:17), a town in the tribe of Reuben beyond the Jordan, but which was in the possession of the Moabites in the time of Ezekiel (Ezekiel 25:9). At the distance of two miles south-east of Heshbon, Burckhardt found the ruins of a place called Myoun, or (as Dr. Robinson corrects it) Mâi′n, which is doubtless the same.
