    HAMMON

    ham'-on (chammon, "glowing"):

    (1) A place on the seaward frontier of Asher, named with Rehob and Kanah (Joshua 19:28), to be sought, therefore, not far from Tyre. The most probable identification so far suggested is with Umm el'Amud, "mother of the column" (or `Awamid, "columns"), at the mouth of Wady Chamul, on the shore, about 10 miles South of Tyre. An inscription found by Renan shows that the place was associated with the worship of Ba`al Chamman (CIS, I, 8).

    (2) A city in Naphtali, given to the Gershonite Levites (1 Chronicles 6:76). It is identical with Hammath (Joshua 19:35), and probably also with Hammoth-dor (Joshua 21:32).
