abnaim . Exodus 1:16 (Jeremiah 18:3, where "a potter's wheel" is meant); literally, two stones.

Gesenius however refers it to the laver in which the newborn child was washed, and in which Persian kings used to cause sons of female relatives to be drowned immediately after birth (Thevenot, Itin. 2:98).
