ARIMATHEA “ A city of the Jews” (Luke, 23.51), placed by St. Jerome near Diospolis or Lydda (Epitaph. Paul.), which would correspond very well with the situation of Ramleh, where a late tradition finds the city of Joseph of Arimathea. The arguments against this hypothesis are fully stated by Dr. Robinson. (Palestine, vol. iii. pp. 33, &c.) He concludes that its site has not yet been identified. Some writers identify it with RAMA.
