kat´ath ( קטּת , ḳaṭṭāth ): A city in the territory of Zebulun, named with Iphtah-el, Nahalel, and Shimron ( Joshua 19:15 ), perhaps to be identified with Kitron (Judges 1:30 ), from which Zebulun did not expel the Canaanites; and with Kartah (Joshua 21:34 ), which was given to the Merarite Levites. The Babylonian Talmud (Meg. 6a) identifies Kattath with Sepphoris, the modern Seffūriyeh (but see Neubauer, Geographie du Talmud , 191). The Jerusalem Talmud takes it as identical with Ḳetūnith , Ḳuṭeineh , to the West of Esdraelon. It should probably, however, be sought near to Shimron, the modern Semūniyeh .
