BETH-ANOTH bĕth’ ā’ nŏth (Heb. בֵית־עֲנֹ֖ות, “house (shrine) of Anat(s),” a village mentioned in the list of cities belonging to Judah (Josh 15:59). Probably an archaic Canaanite altar and shrine, possibly mentioned in some Egyp. documents in lists of W. Palestinian towns.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The ruin of Beit `Ainun, 1 1/2 miles Southeast of Halhul, in the neighborhood also of Bethzur and Gedor--places mentioned in association with it as towns in the hill country of Judah--appears to be a probable site. The present surface ruins belong to later ages.
