Here I'm speaking merely as a linguist, not an archaeologist.
In Joshua 15:55, the structure of the text indicates that Maon was a town of
Carmel. That a later town was built and named Carmel is possible, but the
indications from within the text including several references besides Joshua
are that Carmel was a region, not a town, at least through the early kingdom
At least, that's the way I understand the text.
