Aiath (Near East geography model)

Aiath, or Ai is mentioned once in Nephi's quotation of Isaiah's writings. Isaiah explains that Aiath has been conquered by the Assyrians. Aiath could be a reference to a city mentioned along with Heshbon by Jeremiah 49:3, whose location is currently unknown, which may or may not be the same as a Canaanite royal city which according to the Book of Joshua was conquered by the Israelites on their second attempt. The ruins of the city are popularly thought to be in the modern-day archaeological site Et-Tell.
