  loathing,  the  son  of  Ebed,  in  whom  the  Shechemites  "placed  their 
  confidence"  when  they  became  discontented  with  Abimelech.  He 
  headed  the  revolution,  and  led  out  the  men  of  Shechem  against 
  Abimelech;  but  was  defeated,  and  fled  to  his  own  home  (Judg. 
  9:26-46).  We  hear  no  more  of  him  after  this  battle. 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
