Azura's Coast, [19,-8]

Aharnabi is a small cave located just south of the Shrine of Azura, on the far southeastern point of Vvardenfell's mainland.

Aharnabi is the hideout of Honthjolf the Traitor, a wanted deserter from the Imperial Legion, and his minions, three sorcerers and two random Atronachs. The submerged sections of the cave are infested with slaughterfish.

The entrance of the cave has some lovely mushrooms to pick, once you have dealt with the hostile bandit Erissare just within the entrance. Venturing further inside, you will encounter an atronach in front of a set of stairs and another bandit, Dirding, at the bottom of those stairs.

At the intersection, the right path leads Llarusea Andrethi's quarters, which contain various alchemical ingredients and scrolls in urns and on the table. The table also contains a full set of Journeyman quality alchemy apparatus and the Alchemy skill book A Game at Dinner. Three locked chests (levels 10, 20, and 45) and a locked and trapped chest (level 25) contain random items.

To the left from the intersection is Hontjolf himself, along with a small amount of loot including the Alteration skill book Sithis. A Preserved Ancient Key can be found in a chest next to some gold stacks, but it doesn't open anything.
