A coastal station or anchorage and associated settlement that scholars identify with the modern Khawr/Khor Ghurayrah on Yemen's Ra’s Shaykh Sa‘īd headland in the Bab al-Mandab Strait. This small bay is almost closed by sand and coral reefs today. The precise location of the ancient settlement is not known.
