Abstract: In this paper, we present a counterexample to show that adequate domains are not characterized by the property that nonzero prime ideals are contained in a unique maximal ideal. The counterexample is obtained by constructing a lattice-ordered group with certain properties and exploiting the relation between Bezout domains and their (lattice-ordered) group of divisibility. The domain constructed is an elementary divisor ring with zero Jacobson radical. The lattice-ordered group constructed also shows that various conjectures about $ l$-groups are false.
