Punon, a camping place of the wilderness wanderings (See list Num 33) and noted for the events of Num 21 with the lifting up of the brazen serpent. Copper mines are found in the vicinty of Punon, and even today copper slag can be found from the primary refining of the ore once dug here. Qalat Punon is marked only by a few old stone walls, and little else.
