Javan (jâ'van), day. 1. A son of Japheth. Genesis 10:2; Genesis 10:4; Isaiah 66:19; Ezekiel 27:13. Javan was regarded as the representative of the Greek race. The name was probably introduced into Asia by the Phœnicians, 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 Phœnicians traded. Ezekiel 27:19.
