aDNA from "Continuity and admixture in the last five millennia of Levantine history from ancient Canaanite and present-day Lebanese genome sequences"

EGAN00001390965 age 3,650 ybp
J-M12(xL283)

low coverage 1.69X

maybe M241+ or M205+?... no call?
negative for L283 and downstream

Considering​ he is J2b-M12 and negative for J2b2a-L283, I think he is most likely J2b1-M205, or J2b2b-Z2453 which is more unlikely but possible.

Why do you think Z2453 unlikely? A lot of Jewish people also have Z2453.

Yes, J2b2b-Z2453 is possible, but I think J2b1-M205 is much more likely considering it's been found in aDNA in the Levant area, as well as its modern distribution there.

One of the Ancient Egyptian samples from Abusir el Malaq also was J2b1-M205, so it really looks like this marker was more common in the region by the past. I also think the Bronze Age Sidonian will be J2b1-M205.

I carry haplogroup J-M12 and I am an Arabs from Palestine currently but it looks like our history comes from North Africa and Arabia

that gives more strong base for J2 in the fertile crescent.
