Yohanan Aharoni doubted the existence of Harosheth: “It appears likely that Harosheth-ha-goiim is not a place name at all but refers rather to the forested regions of Galilee … ” See also Aharoni and Michael Avi-Yonah, The Macmillan Bible Atlas, eds. Anson F. Rainey and Z. Safrai. (New York: Macmillan, 3rd ed., 1993), p. 54: “There is no city by the name of Harosheth-hagoiim in any extra-biblical source … Harosheth means ‘cultivated land’ and refers to the rich farm area on the southern side of the Jezreel Valley.”
