  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  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)  [hitchcock]:
