1. One is on the east side of the Dead Sea 15 ms. s.e. of the mouth of the Jordan and on the heights 8 1/2 miles e. from the shore. There remain nothing but ruins now called Attarus. Mentioned only in Numb. 32:3, 34.
2. The second is that of Josh. 16:2, 7 which has, improbably been supposed to be at a place called Atara, 6 1/2 ms. n. by w. from Bethel, for from Josh. 15:2 this site appears off the line therein described as also does the the site of the ruins at Dariah, as proposed by Conder, one m. s.w. of the lower Beth-horon, but Archi at Arik 3 ms. n.e. from lower Beth-horon, is very probably the true site of this town anciently called Archi-ataroth, as Luz was called Bethel, Josh. 18:13. This may be the Ataroth-a'dar, or addar, of Josh. 16:5, but the third Ataroth, that of the 7th verse, is not known.
