Amatha (Α᾿μαθά, i.q. Hamath, q.v.; comp. Josephus, Ant. 10, 5, 2), a place named by Jerome and Eusebius (Ε᾿μμαθά) in the Onomasticon (s.v. AEmath, Α᾿ιθάμ) as one of several places by that name, this being situated near Gadara, and having warm springs. It is apparently the modern ruin Amateh, discovered by Seetzen (Ritter, Erdk. 15, 372), on the Nahr Yarmuk, not far from Um Keis (Burckhardt, Travels, p. 273, 276-278). SEE AMATHUS.
