Pirathon, Pirathonite

Additional Links

PIRATHON, PIRATHONITE . Pirathon ‘in the land of Ephraim’ was the home of Abdon ‘the Pirathonlte’ ( Judges 12:13; Judges 12:15 ), and of Benaiah, one of David’s heroes ( 2 Samuel 23:30 etc.). It can hardly have been identical with Parathon (wh. see), but it is probably represented by either Fer‘on or Fer‘ata .
