אֵתָם Exodus 13:20; Numbers 33:6, [Etham], the name of a place on the borders of Egypt and the Arabian desert, from which the neighbouring part of the desert, as far as Marah, received the same name. Numbers 33:8. LXX. Ὀθώμ. Jablonsky (Opuscc. ii. 157) regards it as the Egyptian ⲁⲧⲓⲟⲙ, i.e. boundary of the sea.
