fountain of the sun a spring which formed one of the landmarks on the boundary between Judah and Benjamin ( Joshua 15:7 ; 18:17 ). It was between the "ascent of Adummim" and the spring of En-rogel, and hence was on the east of Jerusalem and of the Mount of Olives. It is the modern 'Ain-Haud i.e., the "well of the apostles" about a mile east of Bethany, the only spring on the road to Jericho. The sun shines on it the whole day long.
