En-rim'mon (Hebrews Eyn Rimmon', עֵין רַמַּוֹן, fountain of Rimmon; Sept. ἐν ῾Ρεμμών v. r. ἐν ῾Ρεμαών, Vat. MS. omits, Vulg. et in Remmon), a place occupied by the descendants of Judah after the exile (Ne 11:29). It appears from the associated places to be the same with the "Ain and Rimmon" of Jos 15:32 (comp. Jos 19:7; 1Ch 4:32), where perhaps, in like manner, but one place is referred to, a spring adjoining the town of Rimmon. SEE AIN. Yet the enumeration ("five cities") of 1Ch 4:32 ("Ain, Rimmon") requires them to be taken as distinct. In fact, there appears to have been a Levitical city en-Rimmon near to, but originally distinct from the nonLevitical Rimmon, and indicated by a remarkable reservoir still extant in the vicinity. SEE RIMMON.
