dan -jā´an ( דּן יען , dān ya‛an ; B, Δὰν Εἰδὰν καὶ Οὐδάν , Dán Eidán kaı́ Oudán ): A place visited by Joab and his officers when taking the census (2 Samuel 24:6 ). It is mentioned between Gilead and Sidon. Some would identify it with Khān Dāniān , a ruined site North of Achzib. The text is probably corrupt. Klostermann would read "toward Dan and Ijon" (compare 1 Kings 15:20 ).
