(Μακέδ v. r. Μακέβ ; Syr. Mokor; Vulg. Mageth), one of the "strong and great cities" of Gilead Josephus says Galilee, but this must be an error-into which the Jews were driven by the Ammonites under Timotheus, and from which they were delivered by Judas Maccabaeus (1 Maccabees 5:26; 1 Maccabees 5:36; in the latter passage the name is given in the A. V. as MAGED). By Josephus (Ant. 12:8, 3) it is not mentioned. Some of the other cities named in this narrative have been identified, but no name corresponding to Maked has yet been discovered, and the conjecture of Schwarz (p. 230), that it is a corruption of MINNITHS ( מגת for מנּת ), though ingenious, can hardly be accepted without further proof.
