(Heb., Ammon', עִמּוֹן, another form of the name Ben-Ammi; Sept. Α᾿μμάν), the son of Lot by his younger daughter (Ge 19:38), B.C. 2063. SEE BEN-AMMI. It also stands for his posterity (comp. Ps 83:7-8), usually in the phrase "children of Ammon." SEE AMMONITE. The expression most commonly employed for this nation is (in the original) "Bene-Ammon;" next in frequency comes "Ammoni" or "Ammonim;" and least often "Ammon." The translators of the Auth. Vers. have, as usual, neglected these minute differences, and have employed the three terms, children of Ammon, Ammonites, Ammon, indiscriminately. For No- Ammon, SEE AMON, and SEE NO. The name is perpetuated in the modern ruins called Amman, which represent RABBAH-AMMON SEE RABBAH-AMMON (q.v.).
