John 3:23. Named to mark the locality of Aenon ("fountains"), the scene of the last baptisms by John (John 3:23). Eusebius and Jerome (Onomasticon) mention Salim as near Jordan, eight Roman miles S. of Scythepolis. Exactly agreeing with this is Salim, six English miles S. of Beisan and two miles W. of Jordan. A Mussulman's [Muslim's (?)] tomb on the northern base of Tell Redghah, near ruins, is called Sheykh Salim (Van de Velde, Syriac and Pal. ii. 345, section 6). John's progress was from S. to N., so that this would suitably be the scene of his last labours. The brook wady Chasneh runs dose by, a fountain gushes out beside the wely, and rivulets run in all directions, answering to "there was much water there." (But (See AENON.)
