Greek display:    

Headword: Χαμώς
Adler number: chi,78
Translated headword: Chamos, Chemosh
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
He was a god of [the] Tyrians or the Ammonites, just as Astarte [was] a goddess of [the] Sidonians, [sc. both of] whom Solomon served.
Greek Original:
Χαμώς: θεὸς ἦν Τυρίων ἢ Ἀμμανιτῶν, ὥσπερ ἡ Ἀστάρτη θεὸς Σιδωνίων, οἷς ἐλάτρευσε Σολομῶν.
Notes:
For this material arranged in other ways see already alpha 4222 and sigma 772.
English versions adopt Chemosh, the Hebrew form of the name כמוש kemōš. The Old Testament attributes the god to the Moabites: see e.g. Numbers 21:29, Jeremiah 31:13, 1 Kingdoms [3 Kings] 11:1-8. The lexicographer is not following the Septuagint, however, but George the Monk (Chronicon 204.16-18, 206.5-10, 429.7-8).
