AROER a city of the Amorites on the north side of the valley of the Arnon (Wady-el-Môjib) (Deut. 2.36, 3.12), occupied by the tribe of Gad (Numb. 32.34). Eusebius says that the site of the city existed in his day on the top of a hill (Onomast. s. v.). And Burckhardt was shown, on the top of the precipice which forms the northern brink of the Wady-el-Môjib, the ruins of Araayr, which he concludes to be the Aroer of the Scriptures. (Travels, p. 372.)
