Depends on whether or not the breaker is designed for two wires.

One lug....one wire. Pigtail two wires together to make one, then make the connection to the breaker post.

I think classicsat answered the question that was asked. Would be interesting, however, to know why the question was asked. This term usually comes up in home inspection reports.
