From Book of Mormon Onomasticon
Variant Spellings of SIDON
- P, 1837-1981: Sidon
- 1830: Sidom
- O: Sidon / Siden
- P: Sidon
- O: Siden > Sidon
- Discussion: In Alma 2:17, the 1830 compositor set Sidon as Sidom. The land Sidom occurs later, so this must just be a visual error. The other error in two verses is simply a slip of the pen.
