Bethmaus (Βηθμαούς), a place located by Josephus (Life, § 12) at 12 stadia from Tiberias, toward Sepphoris, and thought by Lightfoot (Chorogr. ch. 78) to be the Beth-Maon (בית מעון) of the Talmud (Totsephath Shebiith, ch. 7), in Lower Galilee; probably the present ruins Kulat Ibn-Maan, a little west of Mejdel (Magdala), along the Sea of Galilee (comp. Schwarz, p. 177). SEE BETH-MEON; SEE MAON.
