(ahr' kite) Canaanite clan listed in the table of nations (Genesis 10:17 ). They apparently centered around Arqa, modern Tell Arqa in Syria 80 miles north of Sidon. Thutmose III of Egypt conquered it. It appears in the Amarna letters. Tiglath-pileser III of Assyria conquered it in 738 B.C. Romans called it Caesarea Libani and noted its Astarte worship.
