Rakkon (2)

is thought by Lieut. Conder (Memoirs to Ordnance Survey, 2:263) to be identical with the present Tell er-Rekkeit, close to the Aujeh (supposed to represent Mejarkon), and five an and a half miles along the shore north of Joppa, where "cisterns and traces of ruins are said to exist under the sand"' (ibid. page 275). Tristram strangely says (Bible Places, page 51), ''Mejarkon and Rakkon have recently' been identified with Oyun Kara, in the plain of Sharon, three miles south-east of Joppa." (See RAMATH- ELEH).
