HORONAIM ( = "the two hollows"):

City of Moab (Isa. xv. 5; Jer. xlviii. 3, 5), mentioned also in the Mesha inscription (lines 31, 32) under the name . Its site is supposed by some to be to the south of the Arnon. Josephus ("Ant." xiii. 15, § 4; xiv. 1, § 4) speaks of a Moabite city named "Oronas" or "Orone" as having been taken by Alexander Jannæus.
