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.
(Ashteroth of the two horns or peaks ) a place of very great antiquity, the abode of the Rephaim. ( Genesis 14:5 ) The name reappears but once, as Carnaim or Carnion, 1 Macc. 5:26,43,44; 2 Macc. 12:21,26, in "the land of Galaad." It is probably the modern Es-Sanamein , on the Haj route, about 25 miles south of Damascus.
