Araba (Α᾿ραυά, prob. for Arabah), a city mentioned by Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v.) as lying near Diocaesarea (now Sefurieh), apparently the same mentioned by Josephus (Life, 51, where the text now has Γάβαρα instead of ῎Αραβα, by a conjecture of Reland, Palaest. p. 1021; see Robinson, new ed. of Researches, 3, 83) as lying 20 stadia from Sogane; now the village Arrabeh, about four hours north of Nazareth (Schultz, in Ritter, Erdk. 16, 768), containing Jewish graves, with other remains of antiquity (Van de Velde, Memoir, p. 287).
