Translation:They are in Greece.

I would also like to know why "They are found in Greece" was marked wrong. After all, if you have friends or neighbors in Greece at the moment wouldn't you just say "הם ביוון"? I'm thinking this could be the answer to the question "Where do you find the best olives?" "They are found in Greece."
Talitha, I’d like to add to Ingeborg’s answer. I googled Greece in the Bible and came up with Daniel 8:21. Here, Daniel is given a vision of the future. “And the goat is the king of Greece…”
Then if you google Daniel 8:21 interlinear, you will see the verse in Hebrew, and if you touch the number above the word Greece, you will see that Greece is Yavan, a son of Japheth, also his descendants and their land.
Japheth is a son of Noah, so Yavan is the grandson of Noah.
