Kfar Tebnit or Kfar Tibnit (Arabic: كفر تبنيت) is a village located approximately 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) south southeast of Nabatieh, 37 kilometres (23 mi) southeast of Sidon in Lebanon.
Kfar Tebnit takes its name from Tabnith in arabic تبنيت (Phoenician “Tibni”), a ruler in the area ca. 280 BC and known as the “king of two Sidons”. The sarcophagus of his son Eshmun-‘azar was found to bear a long inscription aimed to prevent looting with assurances that the tomb contained no treasure.
