15. Bethanamran, also Bethnambris - (Tell Nimrim)

There is only visible the lower part of the image, but we can distinguish a gate, two towers and some segments of walls.

Bethnamran (Num 32:36) beyond the Jordan, which the tribe of Gad built. And today there is a village (called) Bethnambris (Bethnamaris) at the fifth milestone from Livias to the north. (Eusebius, Onomasticon 44:16-18; Jerome 45:21-23)
