Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יָוָן [Javan], pr.n.

(1)  Ionia, from this province being more to the east, and better known than the rest of Greece to the Orientals, its name became applied in their languages to the whole of Greece; this has been expressly remarked by Greek writers themselves (Æschyl. Acharn. 504, ibique Schol. Pers. 176, 561). Genesis 10:2; Daniel 8:21; Isaiah 66:19; Ezekiel 27:13; Zechariah 9:13. (Syriac ܝܘܰܢܐܳ, ܝܘܽܢ, ܝܰܘܢܳ, Greece; Arab. يَوْنَاِنُّى a Greek.) The patron. is יְוָנִי. Hence בְּנֵי הַיְּוָנִים sons of the Greeks, υἷες Ἀχαίων. Joel 4:6.

(2)  Ezekiel 27:13 is perhaps a city of Arabia Felix, compare يَوَنُ, يَوَانُ Jawan, a city of Yemen, Kamûs.
