יָוָן Strong’s #3120 yavan

The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.

Genesis 10:2

For I have bent Judah as my bow; I have made Ephraim its arrow. I will brandish your sons, O Zion, over your sons, O Greece, and wield you like a warrior’s sword. (Zechariah 9:13 RSV). The Hebrew name for Greece is yavan and is related to the Hebrew word yayin (Strongs #3196) meaning wine: The land of wine? Yavan, the founder of the land of yavan, was the son of Japheth, the son of Noah (Genesis 10:2).
