(Heb. ha-Rakkon', הָרִקּוֹן, with the article; the temple [of the head], Gesen.; a well-watered place, First; Sept.' ῾Ιεράκων, Vulg. Arecon), one of the towns in the inheritance of Dan (Joshua xix. 46), apparently not far distant from Joppa. As it is mentioned between Me-jarkon and Japho, the site is possibly that of the village Kheibeh or Kutbeibeh, marked on the maps as lying north of the Nahr Rubin, west of Akir (Elron).
