EASTON’S BIBLE DICTIONARY (1897 EDITION)
Avim – a people dwelling in Hazerim, or “the villages” or “encampments” on the south-west corner of the sea-coast (Deut. 2:23).
They were subdued and driven northward by the Caphtorim.
A trace of them is afterwards found in Josh. 13:3, where they are called Avites.
