MADMEN (מַדְמֵ֣ן). A town in Moab against which Jeremiah prophesied (Jer 48:2). There is the possibility of an error in transcription in the text; if there is, one should read Dimon, which may be the same as Dibon. See Dibon.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

An unidentified town in Moab against which Jeremiah prophesied (48:2). The play upon the words here suggests a possible error in transcription: gam madhmen tiddomi, "Also, Madmen, thou shalt be silenced." The initial "M" of "Madmen" may have arisen by dittography from the last letter of gam. We should then vocalize it as "Dimon," which of course is "Dibon."
