Al'mon (Hebrew Almon', עִלמוֹן, hidden; Sept. Ε᾿λμών v. r. Γάμαλα), the last named of the four sacerdotal cities of the tribe of Benjamin (Jos 21:18), called ALEMETH SEE ALEMETH (q.v.) in the parallel passage (1Ch 6:60), where it is named second of the three there mentioned; it is omitted in the general list of the Benjamite cities (Jos 18:21-28). Jarchi and Kimchi, after the Targum of Jonathan, confound it with the BAHURIM SEE BAHURIM (q.v.) of 2Sa 3:16. Schwarz (Palest. p. 128) says he discovered the ruins of ancient buildings bearing the name Al-Muth, which he regards as Almon, on a hill one mile north-east of the site of Anathoth; doubtless the Almit similarly identified by Dr. Robinson (new ed. of Researches, 3, 287; comp. Tobler, Denkblatter, p. 631). SEE ALMON-DIBLATHAIM.
