  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Millo 
  (Heb.  always  with  the  article,  the"  Millo).  (1.)  Probably  the 
  Canaanite  name  of  some  fortification,  consisting  of  walls  filled 
  in  with  earth  and  stones,  which  protected  Jerusalem  on  the  north 
  as  its  outermost  defence.  It  is  always  rendered  Akra  i.e.,  "the 
  citadel",  in  the  LXX.  It  was  already  existing  when  David 
  conquered  Jerusalem  (2  Sam.  5:9).  He  extended  it  to  the  right 
  and  left  thus  completing  the  defence  of  the  city.  It  was 
  rebuilt  by  Solomon  (1  Kings  9:15,  24;  11:27)  and  repaired  by 
  Hezekiah  (2  Chr.  32:5). 
 
  (2.)  In  Judg.  9:6,  20  it  is  the  name  of  a  rampart  in  Shechem, 
  probably  the  "tower  of  Shechem"  (9:46,  49).
