(at' uh rawth) Place name meaning, “crowns.” 1. Town desired and built up by tribe of Gad (Numbers 32:3,Numbers 32:34). Mesha, king of Moab, about 830 B.C. claims he captured Ataroth but admits it belonged to Gad “from of old” and had been built by an Israelite king. It is located at modern Khirbet Attarus, eight miles northwest of Dibon and eight miles east of the Dead Sea. 2. Village on border of Benjamin and Ephraim (Joshua 16:2,Joshua 16:7) It may be modern Khirbet el-Oga in the Jordan Valley.
