Baal-Meon:

lord of dwelling, a town of Reuben (Num 32:38), called also Beth-meon (Jer 48:23) and Beth-baal-meon (Jos 13:17). It is supposed to have been the birth-place of Elisha. It is identified with the modern M'ain, about 3 miles south-east of Heshbon.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Baal-Meon:

ba'-al-me'-on ba‘al me‘on; Beelmeon: A town built by the children of Reuben along with Nebo, "their names being changed" (Nu 32:38), identical with Beon of Nu 32:3. As Beth-baal-meon it was given by Moses to the tribe of Reuben (Jos 13:17). Mesha names it as fortified by him (MS, L. 9). It appears in Jer 48:23 as Beth-meon, one of the cities of Moab. Eusebius, Onomasticon speaks of it as a large village near the hot springs, i.e. Callirrhoe, in Wady Zerka Ma‘in, 9 miles from Heshbon. This points to the ruined site of Ma‘in, about 4 miles Southwest of Madeba. The ruins now visible however are not older than Roman times.
