Leüm'mim (Heb. Leiimmimn', לאֻמַּים, peoples, as often; Sept. Λαωμείμ), the last named of the three sons of Dedan (grandson of Abraham by Keturah), and head of an Arabian tribe descended from him (Ge 25:3; and Vulgate at 1Ch 1:32). B.C. considerably post 2024.

They are supposed to be the same with the Allumoeotoe (Α᾿λλουμαιῶται), named by Ptolemy (6:7, 24) as near the Gerrhaei, which appears to be a corruption of the Hebrew word with the art. prefixed. He also enumerates Luma among the towns of Arabia Deserta (5:19), and Forster (Geogr. of Arabia, 1:335) suggests that this may liave been an ancient settlement of the same tribe" (Kitto). "They are identified by Fresnel (in the Journ. Asiat. iiie serie, 6:217) with an Arab tribe called Umeiyim, one of the very ancient tribes of Arabia of which no genealogy is given by the Arabs, and who appear to have been ante-Abrahamic, and possibly aboriginal inhabitants of the country."
