(double resting-place), one of the cities allotted to the tribe of Issachar (Joshua 19:18). It is mentioned on two occasions (1 Samuel 28:4; 2 Kings 4:8). It was besides the native place of Abishag (1 Kings 1:3). It is mentioned by Eusebius as five miles south of Mount Tabor, and then known as Sulem. This agrees with the position of the present Solam, a village three miles north of Jezreel and five from Gilboa.
