A town in the territory of Benjamin in Palestine, included among the original Levitical cities (Joshua 21:18 compare 1Chronicles 6:60 ). It has been identified by Robinson with the modern village ' Anâ ta, about two and one-half miles northeast of Jerusalem. It was the home of Abiathar (1Kings 2:26 ) and of Jeremiah, the prophet (Jeremiah 1:1 ). It was also probably one of the towns occupied by the exiles who returned from captivity. Its importance was due largely to its superior commanding elevated location. See Anath .
