Be'ten (Heb. id. בֶּטֶן, belly, i.e. hollow; Sept. Βέτεν v. r. Βαιθόκ and Βατνέ), one of the cities on the border of the tribe of Asher (Jos 19:25, only). By Eusebius (Onom. s.v. Βατναι) it is said to have been then called Bebeten (Βεβετέν), and to have lain eight miles east of Ptolemais; but this distance is too little, as the place appears to be the "Ecbatana of Syria" (Cellar. Notit. 3, 3, 13, 74), placed by Pliny (5, 17) on Carmel; apparently the present village with ruins called el-Bahneh, five hours east of Akka (Van de Velde, Narrat. 1, 285).
