According to The Book of Mormon, the land of Antum was in the land Northward and was near the city of Jashon. The prophet Ammaron deposited all the sacred engravings of his people in the Hill Shim which was located in the land of Antum (Mormon 1:3). This verse is the only place in the book where the land Antum is mentioned by name, but it is implied in two other verses in Mormon's record. In Mormon 2:17, Mormon reports that he followed the instructions of Ammaron and took up the plates of Nephi from the hill Shim, which was in the land Antum, and made a record of the things he observed concerning his people, the Nephites. In Mormon 4:23, because of the imminent Lamanite incursion, Mormon returned to the hill and took up all the records that Ammaron had hidden there.[1]
