Dil'ein (Heb. Dilan', דִּלעָן, a gourd-field or cucumber-patch, suggestive of a rich soil; Sept. Δαλαάν v.r. Δαλάδ, Vulg. Delean), one of the cities of Judah, situated in the "valley" or maritime plain, and mentioned between Migdal- gad and Mizpeh (Jos 15:38). Van de Velde (Narrat. 2:160) suggests that it may be the modern place Tina (Beit Tiuna, a Mussulman village, according to Smith, in Robinson's Researches, 1st edit. 3, Append. page 118), about three miles north of Tell es-Safieh, in the maritime plain of Philistia, south of Ekron. Schwarz (Palest. page 103) combines the name with Mizpeh following, against the text.
