Shoshanna, I am a bit confused, because surely both qarnaim and qarne
are dual forms - which are of course commonly used for "horns" which
come in pairs. The plural is qeranot, construct qarnot, and is used in
the Bible. But is the dual in fact used as a more general plural when
the meaning is "rays"?
