Dathan

(fl. ?13th cent, BCE)
   Israelite rebel leader, head of a family of the tribe of Reuben. He and Abiram, also of the tribe of Reuben, joined Korah in his rebellion against Moses, whom they attacked for assuming the leadership; as descendants of Jacob's eldest son, they claimed the leadership for themselves. Later they were swallowed up by the earth (Numbers 16).
