kā´mon ( קמון , ḳāmōn ; the King James Version Camon ): The place where Jair was buffed ( Judges 10:3-5 ). It is possibly represented either by Ḳamm or Ḳumeim , ruins which lie about 6 and 7 miles respectively to the South-Southeast of Umm Ḳeis . See further HAVVOTH-JAIR . The ruins of Ḳamm , about 200 yds. square, crown a small elevation, and point to an important place in the past. There are large rock-hewn cisterns to the South. Among the ruins of Ḳumein , which are not considerable, a few mud huts are built, occupied today by about 200 souls (Schumacher, Northern 'Ajlûn , 137).
