Hamor is mentioned in the Bible as the father of Shechem and the one whom Jacob purchased land from.  Hamor, along with Shechem, were killed by Simeon and Levi in an act of revenge for the rape of their sister Dinah. His names means “donkey”, possible a reference to the phrase “kill the donkey” which was used in ancient times to refer to the conclusion of a covenant.
