City in Lower Egypt, built seven years after Hebron. It was the capital of the Hyksos or shepherd kings of Egypt. It was here that Moses and Aaron met with Pharaoh and here the 'plagues' were wrought; for it was in the 'field of Zoan' that God did marvellous things. The place was denounced by God, and He said its princes had become fools. Numbers 13:22; Psalm 78:12,43; Isaiah 19:11,13; Isa.30:4; Ezekiel 30:14 .
