Gibbethon:

a height, a city of the Philistines in the territory of Dan, given to the Kohathites (Jos 19:44; 21:23). Nadab the king of Israel, while besieging it, was slain under its walls by Baasha, one of his own officers (1Ki 15:27). It was in the possession of the Philistines after the secession of the ten tribes (2Ch 11:13,14).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Gibbethon:

gib'-e-thon (gibbethon): A city in the territory of Da in the plain named with Eltekeh and Baalath (Jos 19:44), and assigned to the Kohathite Levites (Jos 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 (1Ki 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 (1Ki 16:15 ). It may possibly be identified with Kibbiah, which lies about 16 miles Southeast of Jaffa; but no certain identification is possible.

Gibbethon:

(a hill) a town allotted to the tribe of Dan (Joshua 19:44) and afterwards given with its "suburbs" to the Kohathite Levites (Joshua 21:23).
