Variant Spellings of SIDON

- Alma 2:17

P: Sidon 1837 -1981 RLDS 1908

A: Sidom

- Alma 43:40

O: Siden > Sidon (may be e or o, but Skousen prefers o)

- Alma 43:51

O: [S]iden > [S]idon (e overwritten by o)

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.

Summary: Maintain Sidon
