Madmannah [N] [E] [H]

(dunghill ), one of the towns in the south district of Judah. ( Joshua 15:31 ) In the time of Eusebius and Jerome it was called Menois, and was not far from Gaza. The first stage southward from Gaza is now el-Minyay , which is perhaps the modern representative of Menois, and therefore of Madmannah.
