Aenon near Salim

“Aenon near Salim” is mentioned only once in the New Testament: “Now John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because there was plenty of water, and people were coming and being baptized” (John 3:23).

The leading candidate is a spring next to a mound called Tell Radragh \ Tel Shalem, 8 km South of Beth-Shean. 

Rarely visited and never excavated, this forgotton site might be an actual place where John the Baptist was active.
