Kohlit is a place, possibly a hill, mentioned several times in the Copper Scroll, one of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Kohlit has become something of a modern-day El Dorado.

It is the area given where the second Copper Scroll, containing a more detailed list, is buried.[1]

Kohlit is also an area east of the Jordan River where Alexander Jannaeus had military campaigns. It is unknown whether this is the same Kohlit as the city.
