GATH-RIMMON

gath-rim'-un (gath rimmon, "winepress of Rimmon"):

(1) A city in the territory of Da named with Bene-berak and Me-jarkon, in the plain not far from Joppa (Joshua 19:45), assigned to the Kohathite Levites (Joshua 21:24), reckoned to Ephraim in 1 Chronicles 6:69. Eusebius, Onomasticon locates it 12 miles from Eleutheropolis on the way to Diospolis. This, however, is too far to the South. More probably it is identical with the "Gath" which Eusebius, Onomasticon places between Antipatris and Jamnia. It is not identified.

(2) A town in the territory of Manasseh, West of Jordan, given to the Levites (Joshua 21:25). There is nothing to indicate the position of the place, and there is much confusion in the writing of the name:

Septuagint Codex Alexandrinus, "Baithsa"; Codex Vaticanus, "Jebatha." In 1 Chronicles 6:70 it is replaced by "Bileam," i.e. IBLEAM (which see).
