Zareth-shahar: The splendour of the dawn, a city "in the mount of the valley"
(Joshua 13:19) It is identified with the ruins of Zara, near the mouth
of the Wady Zerka Main, on the eastern shore of the Dead Sea, some 3
miles south of the Callirrhoe. Of this town but little remains. "A few
broken basaltic columns and pieces of wall about 200 yards back from
the shore, and a ruined fort rather nearer the sea, about the middle
of the coast line of the plain, are all that are left" (Tristram's
Land of Moab).
