Ashkenaz



a son of Gomer and grandson of Japheth. Gen 10:1–3; I Chron. 1:6.
an ancient kingdom in eastern Armenia.

one of the three sons of Gomer (Gen. 10:3), and founder of one of the tribes of the Japhetic race. They are mentioned in connection with Minni and Ararat, and hence their original seat must have been in Armenia (Jer. 51:27), probably near the Black Sea, which, from their founder, was first called Axenus, and afterwards the Euxine.
