Arimathaea

Arimathaea.

The only suggestion of a modern site for this place, except Ramleh, which has been offered, is that of Renthieh, "a miserable hamlet on an isolated ledge of rock which protrudes in the midst of the plain" not far south of Ludd; but Dr. Robinson, who suggests the possible identity, gives urgent reasons against it (Later Researches, p. 141). In the absence of any other plausible site, we may as well acquiesce in that of Ramleh. For a further description of this place see Porter, Handbook for Syria, p. 112; Bdeker, Palest. I p. 133 sq.; Conder, Tent Work. i, 6 sq. See RAMAH
