(Heb. Machaneh'-Dan, מִחֲנְהאּדָן, camp of Dan; Septuag. Παρεμβολὴ Δάν, Vulg. Casitre Dan), a name given to a spot west of Kirjath-jearim, in consequence of its having been the encampment of the party of Danites on their way to capture Laish (Judges 18:12). Mr. Williams suggests a site called Beit Mahanem, on the north side of wady Ismail. and N.N.E. of Deir el Howa (Holy City, 1:12, note); but the name appears on no map, and occurs in no other traveler.
