kar´tan ( קרתּן , ḳartān ): A city in the territory of Naphtali, given to the Gershonite Levites ( Joshua 21:32 ). It is called Kiriathaim in 1 Chronicles 6:76 . Kartan may be a contraction of this. Cheyne (EB , under the word) suggests that both names may be corruptions from "Chinnereth." Neither is mentioned in Joshua 19:32 , Joshua 19:38 , in the list of Naphtalite cities, while Chinnereth is.
