Arnon (2)


This stream, the modern Wady Meb, is still the boundary between the Arab clans of the Beni Saker on the north and the Keraki on the south. The southern bank is about 2130 feet deep and very precipitous, the northern about 200 feet less in .height. The valley between is a tremendous chasm, about two miles wide at the top, which has been worn by the action of the stream in reaching the deep basin of the Dead Sea. See Porter, Handbook for Syria, p. 296; Badeker, Palest. p. 302. The descent is graphically described by Tristram (Land of Moab, p. 140 sq.). ῥ
