New Iranian haplotypes in the article “Influences of history, geography, and religion on genetic structure: the Maronites in Lebanon”, Marc Haber et al.
324 Iranian haplotypes, 25 J1 and 2(324/2 = 0,61% - I171 and I174) have the rare J1 motif 19=15, 390=22, 393=13, 385a=12, DYS458.2) usually associated to J1b M365+
No Lebanese haplotype was found with the described modal.
The Iranian J1’s are mainly L136 negative and P58 negative, while the Levantine, Arabian and the North African haplotypes are mostly L136+ and P58+, so a big difference in terms of two big J1 SNPs of Northern/Southern difference.
So the possible general distribution of this rare J1 genetic signature is:

The connection is the possible Via Alanica. J1b was discovered in Eastern Anatolia and in Georgia but Ancient Iran was a possible source too. There’s a visible trail connecting Northern Iran with Western Iberia. The rare J1 motif (19=15, 390=22, 393=13, 385a=12, 458,2) usually associated to J1b M365+ is found at small but regular rates only in Iran and in Portugal, the two hotspots for this genetic signature, the hypothetic Western Alan J1b genetic signature. Isolated cases (like in Belgium and France) can be found inbetween the two hotspots of what was known as the Via Alanica. The Alans had several haplotypes and genetic genealogy has probably discovered one of them here.
