at'-a-roth, a-ta'-roth (`aTaroth, "crowns" or "wreaths"; Ataroth):
AT'AROTH, there are three towns by this name.
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.
