(τὰ Γάβαρα ), a place several times mentioned by Josephus as one of the principal cities of Galilee (Life, § 25, 61; comp. 10), thought by Rland (Palaest. page 771) to be also the Gabaroth (Γαβαρώθ ) of Josephus (Life, § 45, 47). and to have sometimes been supplanted by Gadara (q.v.) in that historian's text (War, 3:7, 1). It was situated twenty stadia from Sogane (Josephus, Life, § 51), and was discovered by Schulz in the ruins still called Kubareh, in the specified locality (Ritter, Erdk. 16:769). They are situated on the northern brow of the table-land looking down upon the plain of Rameh, and consist of the remains of a large ancient building, with four cisterns, still unbroken, adjoining, and hewn stones strewn around over the space of an acre or more (Robinson, Later Bib. Res. page 86 sq.).
