Anim

ANIM

a'-nim (`anim, "springs"):

One of the cities of the hill country of Judah mentioned immediately after Eshtemoa (Joshua 15:50). It is probably represented by the double ruin of el Ghuwein situated South of es Semu`a. The surface remains are Byzantine--a Christian town called Anem was here in the 4th century, but it is clearly an ancient site of importance (PEF, III, 408, Sh, XXV).
