According to the Bible Dibon was one of the stations of the Israelites during their exodus from Egypt (Numbers 33:45) and later part of the lot of Gad’s tribe (Number 32:3; Joshua 13:9).

Sometime in the 9th Century BCE it became the capital of the Moabites, and its Moabite king Mesha led a succesful rebellion against the Israelites to gain indpendance (II Kings 3).

In 1868 a stele found in Dibon proved to be a decree made by Mesha. It is one of the most important Archaeological discoveries ever made in relation to the Bible.

The site itself bears little finds.
