SHIKKERON shĭk’ ə rŏn (שִׁכְּרֹ֔ון). A place on the N border of Judah, between Ekron and Baalah, toward the sea (Josh 15:11; KJV SHICRON). The site is unknown, but is prob. Tell el-Ful, a little N of the Valley of Sorek.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A place mentioned in Jos 15:11 as being on the northern border of Judah, between Ekron and Baalah, Jabneel being beyond, toward the sea. The site is unknown, but Rev. C. Hauser (PEFS, 1907, 289) suggests Tell es-Sellakeh, Northwest of `Akir, remarking that if this were the site the boundary would follow a natural course over the mountain to Jabneel.
