Hanan'eel (Heb. Chananel', חֲנִנאֵל, which God has graciously given; Sept. Α᾿ναμεήλ, Vulgate Hananeel), a tower (מַגדָּל) of Jerusalem, situated on the exterior wall beyond the tower of Meah in going from the Sheepgate towards the Fish-gate (Ne 3:1; Ne 12:39). It is also mentioned in Jer 31:38; Zec 14:10. Its position appears to have been at the north-eastern corner of the present mosque enclosure (see Strong's Harmony and Expos., Append. 2, p. 19). Schwarz (Palest. p. 251) also locates it in this vicinity, but absurdly identifies it with the tower of Hippicus. SEE JERUSALEM. Gesenius (Thes. Heb. s.v.) suggests that it may have been so called from the name of its founder or builder.
