a -lı̄´an ( עלין , ‛alyān ): A descendant of Esau, and son of Shobal (1 Chronicles 1:40 ). In the corresponding earlier genealogy (Genesis 36:23 ) the same person is given as Alvan (עלון , ‛alwān ), the change of the third consonant being a simple one, common to Hebrew, occurring similarly in Aliah (which see). Alian is not to be identified with Aliah, since the groups of names in which these occur are quite different, and the context in each case is not the same.
