Genesis 10:7; 1 Chronicles 1:9. Third of Cush's sons. In the Hadramaut (the Atramitae), a province of southern Arabia, Pliny (vi. 32) places the city Sabbatha. In this region is a dark race, differing evidently in stock from the fairer Arabs Havilah. (See HAVILAH.) (G. Rawlinson). The Cushites here form the middle connecting link between Ethiopia their original home, and the Cushite settlement on the Euphrates, the original basis of the Babylonian population. (See BABEL.)
