Variant Spellings of SIDON

Alma 2:17

  • P, 1837-1981: Sidon
  • 1830: Sidom

Alma 43:40

  • O: Sidon / Siden
  • P: Sidon

Alma 43:51

  • 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.
