Punon

PUNON (pū'nŏn, Heb. pûnōn). A desert encampment of the Israelites marking the second stop after leaving Sinai (Num.33.42-Num.33.43). Eusebius identified it as being north of Petra, a penal colony where convicts were sent to mine copper, also called Phinon or Phainon. Eusebius is probably correct in this identification.
