Mad'men (Heb. Madmen', מִדמֵן, dunghill; Sept. παῦσις v. r. Μαδαιβημά, Μαδαμημά, and Μαδενηβά; Vulg. silens), a Moabitish town, threatened with destruction by the sword from the Babylonian invasion in connection with the neighboring Heshbon (Jer 48:2). Some (as Hitzig, after the Sept.,Vulg., etc.) regard it as an appellative; and in some editions of the Auth. Vers. it is actually printed "O madmen!" The slight notice only affords an approximate location opposite the northern extremity of the Dead Sea. SEE MADMENAH.
