 Arimathea
    a "city of the Jews" (Luke 23:51), the birth-place of Joseph in
    whose sepulchre our Lord was laid (Matt. 27:57, 60; John 19:38).
    It is probably the same place as Ramathaim in Ephraim, and the
    birth-place of Samuel (1 Sam. 1:1, 19). Others identify it with
    Ramleh in Dan, or Rama (q.v.) in Benjamin (Matt. 2:18).

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)
