2. a. prepare food, etc.) ** probably Babylonian loan-word, from kamânu, cake used in worship of Ištar, Zim KAT 3. 441. — only plural absolute לַעֲשׂוֺת כַּוָּנִים לִמְלֶכֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם Jeremiah 7:18; עָשִׂינוּלְהַעֲצִבָהֿ ׳לָהּ כ Jeremiah 44:19.
כַּוָּן m. a cake, a small cake [used for idolatrous offerings], Jeremiah 7:18, 44:19 Greek καυών, χαυών, χαβών, a word adopted from the Phœnicio-Shemitic. It is from the root כּוּן, Piel כִּוֵּן (Ch. כַּוֵּן) to prepare; not, as some have supposed, from כָּוָה, like the Greek πόπανον, πέμμα, from πέπτω to cook, bake; for this root has the signification of burning, branding, not cooking.
