Ataroth-Addar This place, if the same as Ataroth simply in the same enumeration of- cities on the boundary between Benjamin and Ephraim, cannot have been situated between Janohah and Naarath, and at the same time between Archi and Japhleti; therefore Jos 16:7 seems to mean that the line went from Janohah in opposite directions to Ataroth and Naarath respectively.

SEE TRIBE. Lieut. Conder appears to regard this as a different place from that called simply Ataroth, which he locates at.Tell el-Truny, without defiling its position (Tent Work, ii, 334); while he identifies (ibid. p. 105) Ataroth-Addar with Ed-Darieh, a small ruin laid down on the Ordnance Map as Khurbet Ddiah, one mile and an eighth south of west from Beit-Ur el-Tahta. Dr. Tristram makes this Ataroth to be the same with Ataroth- Addar, but fluctuates as to its position, in one place (Bible Places, p. 116) identifying it with "the modern Atara or Dariah, two miles and a half north of Ramah"' (two widely different places; he evidently means Attara), while in another (ibid. p. 176) he calls it " the village of Tireh," which the Ordnance Map lays down as Et-Tireh, one mile and an eighth south-east of Beit-Ur el-Tohka. The true modern site is probably 'A ttara, which the Ordnance Map lays down on the thoroughfare half-way (a mile. and three fourths) between Bireh (Beeroth) and Er-Ram (Ramah), with'ruins and a pool and tombs adjacent.
