Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כְּעַן adv. Ch. now, already. Daniel 2:23, 3:15 4:34 5:12 Ezra 4:13. From the Hebrew כֵּן so and now (see עַד־כֵּן Nehemiah 2:16), this more lengthened form has sprung, just like Sam. Act 7:1-60 Dan 6:1-28, from the Hebr. קוּם. Hence עַד כְּעַן hitherto. Ezra 5:16.
