From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    according to some MSS., meaning "city of destruction." Other
    MSS. read _'Irhahares_; rendered "city of the sun", Isa. 19:18,
    where alone the word occurs. This name may probably refer to
    Heliopolis. The prophecy here points to a time when the Jews
    would so increase in number there as that the city would fall
    under their influence. This might be in the time of the
    Ptolemies. (See ON.)
