  Golan 
  exile,  a  city  of  Bashan  (Deut.  4:43),  one  of  the  three  cities  of 
  refuge  east  of  Jordan,  about  12  miles  north-east  of  the  Sea  of 
  Galilee  (Josh.  20:8).  There  are  no  further  notices  of  it  in 
  Scripture.  It  became  the  head  of  the  province  of  Gaulanitis,  one 
  of  the  four  provinces  into  which  Bashan  was  divided  after  the 
  Babylonish  captivity,  and  almost  identical  with  the  modern 
  Jaulan  in  Western  Hauran,  about  39  miles  in  length  and  18  in 
  breath.
