Founders Origins Ancient Archaic Neolithic Bronze Age Greece Textbooks Hellenic History Biblical Javan Progenitor Tribe Ionians Greek Patriarchs Aegean Sea

In my old secular college textbook about ancient Greece is mention of Javan, Yavan in the ancient greek (no j sound), who is noted as the namesake of the Ionians, so why would the author note Javan when but the english spelling of the greek phonetics for that name would be Yavan?

Javan was apparently the pelasgian pronunciation, Peleg a son of Heber, the spelling Javan in the hebrew Bible, but the language of Javan after the Tower of Babel had no j sound, so Yavan was the pronunciation by the Ioniains, and Javan the pronunciation by the Pelasgians.

And then before the Phoenicians were called that, and before they were known as Tyrians (Tyre), they were known as Sidonians, namesake of Sidon who was a son of Canaan, later deified the sea god Posidon.  Read much more here http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
