According to the Bible, Admah was one of the five cities of the Vale of Siddim.[1] It was destroyed along with Sodom and Gomorrah.[2] It is supposed by some[who?] to be the same as the "Adam" of Joshua 3:16. The location of Admah is unknown.[3] The town is mentioned figuratively in the Biblical, in Deuteronomy[4] and Book of Hosea.[5]

There has also been some conjecture that Admah is mentioned in the Ebla tablets.[6]
