PIRATHON (pĭr'a-thŏn, Heb. pir‘āthôn). A town of Ephraim in the hill country of the Amalekites, where Abdon, one of the judges, lived and was buried (Judg.12.13-Judg.12.15). Benaiah was from Pirathon (2Sam.23.30; 1Chr.11.31; 1Chr.27.14). Perhaps to be identified with Pharathon, now Far‘atā, west of [[Mount Gerizim]], south of Samaria.
