Di´bon, or Dimon (), called also Dibon-Gad, from its having been rebuilt by the tribe of that name (), a city on the northern bank of the Arnon, at the point where the Israelites crossed that river on their journey to the Jordan, and where their first encampment was made after having passed it. In later times we find it, with other towns in this quarter, in the hands of the Moabites (). The site has been recognized by Seetzen, Burckhardt, and Irby and Mangles, at a place which bears the name of Diban, in a low tract of the district called the Koura, about three miles north of the Arnon (Modjeb). The ruins are here extensive, but offer nothing of interest. There was another place called Dibon in the tribe of Judah (), perhaps the same that is called Dimonah in .
