Hammon (2)

Hammon (Jos 19:28). Tristram thinks (Bible Places, page 293) that this is one of the mounds "just north of Alma, SEE UMMAH, bearing the name of Ilamnzuz;" but no such name appears on the Ordnance Map, nor in the accompanying Memnoirs. The Hamul which has been thought to be the best modern representative of Hammon is laid down on the Map at one and a half miles north-east of Nakmah, as Ain-Hdmul; which is described in the Memoirs (1:157) as "a large perennial spring of good water, irrigating gardens and turning a mill near its source; a plentiful supply." No ancient ruins are noted in the immediate vicinity. Trelawney Saunders locates it (Map of the O.T.) at Khurbet el-Hima, ten miles south-east of Tyre, which consists simply of "large heaps of stones" (Memoirs, 1:176) without any special marks of antiquity.
