Absaloms Pillar

Absaloms Pillar, or Place,

A monument of tomb which Absalom had built during his lifetime in the kings dale, i.e. the valley of the Kedron, at the foot of Mount Olivet, near Jerusalem, ( 2 Samuel 18:18 ) comp. with 2Sam 14:27 for his three sons, and where he probably expected to be buried. The tomb there now, and called by Absaloms name was probably built at a later date.
