Elon (3)

Lieut. Conder (Tent Work in Palest. 2:336) proposes to identify this site with that of Beit Ello, a village marked on the Ordnance Map (sheet 14) at eleven miles northeast of Jimzu (Gimzo), in a plain, without any traces of antiquity; and Tristram (Bible Places, page 51) concurs in this location, which, however, is without the boundaries of Dan. But Elon-beth-hanan, which is probably the same place, the former identifies much more plausibly with Beit Andn, which is laid down at two and a quarter miles south of Beit-ur el-Foka (Upper Bethhoron), and described (Memoirs to the Survey, 3:16) as "a small village on the top of a flat ridge; near the main road to the west are the remains of a khan, with water, and about a mile to the east is- a spring. It was a fief of the Holy Sepulchre in the 12th century."
