(small) One of cities of the tribe of Zebulun. ( Joshua
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
A city in the territory of Zebulun, named with Iphtah-el, Nahalel, and Shimron
19:15), perhaps to be identified with Kitron (Judges
1:30), from which Zebulun did not expel the Canaanites; and with Kartah (Joshua
21:34), which was given to the Merarite Levites. The Babylonian Talmud (Meg.
6a) identifies Kattath with Sepphoris, the modern Seffuriyeh (but see Neubauer,
Geographie du Talmud, 191). The Jerusalem Talmud takes it as identical with Ketunith,
Kuteineh, to the West of Esdraelon. It should probably, however, be sought near
to Shimron, the modern Semuniyeh.
