The Biblical text also mentions a city called Adamah (’DMH) (Genesis 10:19) ruled by King Shinab (Genesis 14:2, 8). It appears to be located in the Jordan Valley near the Dead Sea. It is possible that this is the same place as the city of Adam. Adamah has apparently survived in the Arabic place-name Damiah. A bridge across the Jordan is still known as the Damiyeh Bridge.
