ATS Bible Dictionary
Gibbethon

A city of the Philistines, within the bounds of the tribe of Dan, and assigned to the Levites, Joshua 19:44; 21:23. The Philistines, however, were not excluded; and in the time of Nadab they were its masters, and he was slain by Baasha while besieging it, 1 Kings 15:27; 16:15. Its after-history, and its site are unknown.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
A height, a city of the Philistines in the territory of Dan, given to the Kohathites (Joshua 19:44; 21:23). Nadab the king of Israel, while besieging it, was slain under its walls by Baasha, one of his own officers (1 Kings 15:27). It was in the possession of the Philistines after the secession of the ten tribes (2 Chronicles 11:13, 14).
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
GIBBETHON

gib'-e-thon (gibbethon): A city in the territory of Dan in the plain named with Eltekeh and Baalath (Joshua 19:44), and assigned to the Kohathite Levites (Joshua 21:23). Later we find it in the hands of the Philistines; and it was while besieging the city that Nadab was slain by Baasha (1 Kings 15:27). After 25 years Omri, the general of Baasha, was here made king of the army when news reached them of Zimri s regicide (1 Kings 16:15). It may possibly be identified with Kibbiah, which lies about 16 miles Southeast of Jaffa; but no certain identification is possible.
