uncertain, although many identify Kiria-
thaim with the ruin called Karey&t, lying S.W. of
Makaur (Machaerus) and S. of Jebel Att&rtis. It
is probably to be sought towards the south of the
Moab plateau, but may have been near Heshbon.
Burckhardt's identification with et-Teim, miles
W. of Medeba, is now generally abandoned.

2. A city in Naphtali, given to the Gershonite
Levites, 1 Ch 676 [Heb.61). In the parallel
Byzantine, Crusading, and Arab: but, without
excavation, it is difficult to make any clear dis-
tinction between them. The Latins and Greeks
have in recent years erected churches and mon-
asteries on the sites of the earlier buildings, and
the Latins have recovered the place of the Trans-
figuration mentioned by abbot Daniel.
