Ashteroth Karnaim

Meaning: Ashteroth of the two horns, the abode of the Rephaim (Genesis 14:5)

It may be identified with Ashtaroth preceding; called “Karnaim”, i.e., the “two-horned” (the crescent moon). The Samaritan version renders the word by “Sunamein,” the present es-Sunamein, 28 miles south of Damascus.
