Amerytha (Α᾿μερυθά according to some copies, see Hudson, in loc., while others have Α᾿μερώθα; according to Reland, Palest. p. 560, both by erroneous transcription for Μηρώθ, which most editors give; SEE ACHABARA), a town of Upper Galilee, which Josephus fortified against the Romans (Life, 37); probably the same as MEROTH SEE MEROTH (q.v.), which terminated Upper Galilee westward (Josephus, War, 3, 3, 1); and conjectured by Reland (Palest. p. 875) to have been the Mearah of the Sidonians (Jos 13:4).
