These are my thoughts.
So Javan had four main groups that came from him. Elishah’s people would become known for their purple dies and would be from Cyprus and Sicily. Tarshish would be known for trading goods. Tarshish was from Greece. Kittim was from Cyprus but then moved to other islands around it. Dodanim was from Rhodes islands and the city of Tyre.
