Migdol (Mig´dol; Heb., “tower” or “fortress”)

1 An Israelite campsite landmark on the way out of Egypt (Exod 14:2; Num 33:7), in the eastern Delta, possibly near modern Tell el-Maskhutah. 2 The location of a Jewish settlement in the time of Jeremiah (late seventh–early sixth century BCE), possibly modern Tell el-Heir near or identical with 1 above. 3 The northern extremity of Egypt, used with Syene (modern Aswan) to designate all of Egypt (Ezek 29:10; Ezek 30:6); this is probably the same as 2.
