Strong's #03695 - כַּסְלֻחִים
Casluhim = “fortified”
1) a people or tribe descended from Mizraim (Egypt) progenitors of the Philistines and Caphtorim
כַּסְלֻחִים pl. Genesis 10:14; 1 Chronicles 1:12 [Casluhim], pr.n. of a people deriving their origin from the Egyptians; according to the probable opinion of Bochart (Phaleg. iv. 31), the Colchians, who are mentioned by Greek writers as having been a colony of Egyptians (Herod. ii. 104; Diod. i. 28, 55). The insertion of the letter s is not contrary to the nature of the Phœnicio-Shemitic languages, comp. ܝܳܢܣܶܘܐܳ i.q. ܝܳܢܘܽܩܐ a suckling. [In Thes. the name of Colchians is suggested to have been formed from this by dropping the s.]
