[pron. Cun] (Heb. Kun, כּוּן, deriv. uncertain; Sept. ἐκλεκτός, Vulg. Chun), a Syrian city mentioned in connection with Tibhath, as one of the "cities of Hadarezer," from which David procured brass for building the Temple (1Ch 18:8). In the parallel passage (2Sa 8:8) these two cities are called respectively Betah and BEROTHAI. It is perhaps the same with the Conna mentioned in the Itin. Antonizi as situated between Laodicea and Baalbek. The rendering of the Sept. seems to imply that instead of "from Chun" (מַכּוּן) it had read Berod (בּרוֹד, q. d. בָּבוּר, i.e. בָּחוּר, choice); but Josephus supports the present Heb. text (Μάχωνι, Ant. 7, 5, 3). SEE BEROTHAH.
