Asite in the Wadi Arabah that lies between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea alongside the south Negev desert. The area is rich in copperore and has been mined since Chalcolithic times. The site was excavated from 1964–1970, 1974–1976, and 1978–1983 by a team from the Institute of Archaeology at Tel Aviv University. They discovered copper mining and smelting made by Egyptian expeditions during the New Kingdom during Dynasty 19 and Dynasty 20. The archaeologists found the remains of a small temple dedicated to the goddess Hathor with votive offerings from Sety I to Ramesses V. The site also seems to have been worked under Dynasty 22. It may be the site Atika, which is mentioned in the Harris Papyrusfrom the reign of Ramesses IV.
