Javan

Additional Links

Ja'van. (clay).

1. A son of Japheth. Genesis 10:2; Genesis 10:4. Javan was regarded as the representative of the Greek race. The name was, probably, introduced into Asia by the Phoenicians, to whom the Ionians were naturally better known than any other of the Hellenic races, on account of their commercial activity, and the high prosperity of their towns, on the western coast of Asia Minor.

2. A town in the southern part of Arabia (Yemen), whither the Phoenicians traded. Ezekiel 27:19.
