A city mentioned in the long list of the contributors to Tyrian greatness and commercial power (Ezekiel 27:23 ). The name occurs in no other passage. Cornill takes it to be the "Calneh" of Amos 6:2 and one manuscript has that reading, which would, however, rather give the "Calneh" of Genesis 10:10 . According to Kiepert, it was Κ α ι ν α ί , a city on the Tigris. Mez ("Gesch. der Stadt Harran," 1892, p. 33), indorsed by Cheyne ("Encyc. Bibl." 1:648), proposes to emend the name to "B' nai Eden" but, as Bertholet ("Kurzer Hand-Commentar," on Ezekiel) remarks, it would be extraordinary indeed for such a familiar word as "B' nai" to be corrupted into a form like "Canneh."
