Archevite in the Old Testament was one of the nations planted by the Assyrians in Samaria (Ezra 4:9).

Sir Isaac Newton wrote in The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms that he believed Archevite was located in "the south and south-east side of Assyrian Empire" and were "transplanted by Esarhaddon to Samaria".[1]

Jonathan Edwards thought that the Archevites referred to the men of Erech, which is thought to be modern day Uruk, removed from there and brought to Samaria.[2]
