Madon
The LXX. read [Marn,] which, if legitimate, Calmet thinks may be the same as Maronia or Marath, in Phoenicia, to the north of mount Lebanon, ch
12:19 20; 19:15 25.

Shimron
Supposed to be the same with Symira, in Coele-Syria, joined to Maron or Marath by Pliny and Pomponius Mela.

Achshaph
Supposed by some to be the same as Achzib or Ecdippa; from which, however, it is distinguished in ch
19:25 29. It was in the northern part of the tribe of Asher.
