Gibbethon was a city located in the territory of Dan, and inhabited by the Philistines. The Old Testament describes how this city was given to the Kohathites.
A king of Israel, Nadab, was slain by his own officer Baasha while besieging it. After the secession of the ten tribes, the city remained in the possession of the Philistines.
