Remarks: The name of Javan's descendants appears in Assyrian documents as the Iamanu, where we are told that they engaged the Assyrians in a major sea battle during the reign of King Sargon II (721-705 B.C.). The Archaemenian inscriptions refer to them as the Yauna. Homer tells us in the Iliad that Iawones was the progenitor of the Ionians (Gk. Iones), while the Hebrews knew the Greeks as the Jevanim. Pre-Islamic Arab cartographers gave the name as Yuban.
