A'vim (Hebrews Avvim', with the article, הָעִוּים, the ruins, or the Avvites' tower; Sept. Αὐίμ v. r. Αὐείν), a city in the tribe of Benjamin, mentioned between Bethel and Parah (Jos 18:23). It may have been so named as having been settled by the Avites (q.v.) when expelled from Philistia, although it is uncertain whether they penetrated so far into the interior of the country (Keil, Comment. in loc.). The associated names afford a conjectural location eastward of Bethel, and it is possibly the same with AI (q v). SEE AVITE.
