Teancum

Criteria for the city of Teancum.

 

It was near the city of Desolation (Morm. 4:3).

 

It was located near the seashore (Morm. 4:3).

 

It was near the city of Boaz (Morm. 4:20).

 

The Nephites retreated northward to Teancum following their loss of the city of Desolation (Morm. 4:3).

 

This city was probably to the north of the city of Desolation.  It was likely founded by a man named Teancum, possibly the warrior of Book of Mormon fame.  It was located on the seashore and was probably to the south of the city of Boaz.  I have tentatively identified this city with the ancient site of San Jorge located east of Rivas on the shore of Lake Nicaragua.
