    I wonder, are these the saharonim mentioned in Gideon’s story in Shofetim 8:26
    “And the weight of the golden ear-rings that he requested was a thousand and seven hundred shekels of gold; beside the crescents, and the pendants, and the purple raiment that was on the kings of Midian, and beside the chains that were about their camels’ necks.”

    Albert E.:

    there must have been 2 kinds of saharonim. 1 each for humans (in fact on kings) as in 8:26 and for camels as in 8:21 below:.
    21 Then Zebah and Zalmunna said: ‘Rise thou, and fall upon us; for as the man is, so is his strength.’ And Gideon arose, and slew Zebah and Zalmunna, and took the crescents that were on their camels’ necks. {P}
