of uncertain derivation
a caravan route in the Negev
Brown-Driver-Briggsאֲתָרִים proper name, of a location only Numbers 21:1 ׳דֶּרֶח הָא; so ᵐ5, perhaps (Di) name of a caravan-route, compare vestige, footprint; others (after ᵑ7 ᵑ6) translate way of the spies (compare Numbers 13:22); but הָאֲתָרִים for הַתָּרִים is highly improbable, and a locality would hardly receive its designation from the spies.
אתת (? √ of following, meaning dubious. LagM ii. 254 proposes √ אנה, whence he derives also Arabic a tool used in tillage).
