Fausset's Bible Dictionary
A city of Zebulun, allotted to the Merarite Levites (Joshua 21:34; Joshua 19:11). 1 Kings 4:12, read Jokmeam. Its Canaanite king (Jokneam of Carmel) Joshua slew (1 Kings 12:22). Now Tel Kaimion, an eminence below eastern Carmel, with the river Kishon at its foot a mile off.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
JOKNEAM. A royal Canaanite city ‘in Carmel’ ( Joshua 13:22 ), on the boundary of Zebulun ( Joshua 19:11 ), ‘the brook’ before it being the Kishon. It was assigned to the Merarite Levites ( Joshua 21:34 ). It is probably identical with Cyamon of Jdt 7:5 . The Onomasticon places ‘Cimona’ 6 Roman miles N. of Legio, on the road to Ptolemais. This points definitely to Tell KaimÃ»n , a striking mound about 7 miles N.W. of el-LejjÃ»n , with remains of ancient buildings.
