Archevites

ARCHEVITES, ɑ̄r´ke-vɑits: The name of a people mentioned only in Ezra iv. 9, possibly one of the tribes settled by the Assyrians in Samaria (II Kings xvii. 24). While it is possible that the name was an official designation, it is better taken as meaning “inhabitants of Erech” (see Apharsachites).
