Bo'han (Heb. Bohan', בֹּהִן, a thumb; Sept. Βαιών), a Reubenite, SEE BEN- BOHAN, in whose honor a stone was erected which afterward served as a boundarymark on the frontier of Judah and Benjamin (Jos 15:6; Jos 18:17). It does not appear from the text whether this stone was a sepulchral monument, or set up to commemorate some great exploit performed by this Bohan in the conquest of Canaan (comp. 1Sa 7:12). See STONE. Bunting(Itinerar. tot. S. Script. p. 144), mentioning Bahurim, says that near to it, in the valley, is a stone called Bohan, of extraordinary size, and shining like marble; but this wants confirmation (yet comp. Schwarz, Palest. p. 94). It was situated in the valley of Achor, between Beth-Arabah and Debir, apparently along the eastern side of the present Wady Dabr running into the Dead Sea. SEE TRIBE.
