Pi-hahiroth is the fourth station of the Exodus. The fifth and sixth stations Marah and Elim Thebes Red Sea Port, are located on the Red Sea. The biblical books Exodus and Numeri refer to Pi-hahiroth as the place where the Israelites encamped between Baal-zephon and Migdol while awaiting an attack by Pharaoh, prior to crossing the Red Sea.

Those positing a Hebrew name have speculated "Pi-hahiroth" might mean "mouth of the gorges" descriptive of its location as the end of a canal or river.

William Smith, in his Dictionary of Greek and Roman Geography, tentatively identifies Pi-hahiroth with Arsinoe, Egypt.
