Etymology

Post  Pishkirlin on Wed Jun 25, 2008 1:24 am

Ascalon is the sword that Saint George used to slay the dragon, so whimsically named by Richard Johnson (1573-1659?) after the city Ashkelon.

The etymology of the name of the city is probably Western Semitic and may be derived from the root (shkl; "to weigh"), indicating a commercial or financial center.
