Bethdagon (2)

Bethdagon The town in Judah (Jos 15:41) is identified by Conder (Tent-work, ii, 335) and Tristram (Bible Places, p. 41) with the present Beit-Dejan, between Jaffa and Lydda; a site, however, which could lot have fallen within the limits of that tribe. The town of this name in Galilee (Jos 19:27) is thought by both of these writers (Tent-work, 2, 335; Bible Places, p. 292) to be the modern Tell Dauk on the river Belus, near its mouth. The name corresponds tolerably well (see Quarterly Report of the Palestine Exploration Fund," January, 1881, p. 50), and there are "said to be remains upon the mound" (Robinson, New Researches, p. 103). It is marked on the Ordnance Map as Khirbet Da'uk, a ruined mound about twenty-five feet high, four miles south-east of Akka, with a well adjoining, but no other marks of antiquity.
