Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
BETH-HARAM was situated ‘in the valley-plain of the Jordan’ ( Joshua 13:27 ). In Numbers 32:36 Bethharan . Its site has been recovered at Tell RÃ¢meh at the mouth of the Wady HesbÃ¢n , 6 miles east from the familiar bathing-place of pilgrims in the Jordan. It was rebuilt and fortified by Herod Antipas when he became tetrarch, and in honour of the Roman empress was called Livias or Libias. Merrill ( East of the Jordan , p. 383) gives reasons for believing that it was in the palace here that Herod celebrated his birthday by the feast recorded ( Matthew 14:6-12 , Mark 6:21-28 ), and that the Baptist’s head was brought hither from MachÃ¦rus, some 20 miles south.
