Beth-Aram Tristram identifies this with what he calls Beit -Haran, "a conspicuous mound or tell, which might be artificial, very much like the great mounds of Jericho, and its top crowned with an old Moslem wely or tomb. . . On the mound and alongside of it were a few traces of walls and foundations" (Land of Moab, p. 360). Elsewhere, however, he says, "Beth-Aram is marked by a deserted heap of ruins at that spot, called Beit-Haran according to some, but for which my guides had no name" (Bible Places, p. 336). Prof. Merrill, on the contrary, says, "Its identity with the modern Tell er-Rama cannot be reasonably disputed" (East of the Jordan, p. 383). This latter spot is a mound a short distance east of the other site.
