Why I get this error "Coordinates in 'Point' geographic data structure S must be scalar" when I use shapewrite?

I want to write a shapefile using shapewrite function and I get the following error "Coordinates in 'Point' geographic data structure S must be scalar." My data are the followings: Data =
Geometry: 'Point'
Lat: [40.6214 40.5959 40.6159 40.5873 40.6081]
Lon: [22.9739 22.9533 22.9527 22.9424 22.9766]
What is the problem?

clear;clc
Lon = [22.9739 22.9533 22.9527 22.9424 22.9766] ;
Lat = [40.6214 40.5959 40.6159 40.5873 40.6081] ;
Data = struct([]) ; % initilaize structure
for i = 1:length(Lon)
Data(i).Geometry = 'Point' ;
Data(i).Lat=Lat(i) ; % latitude
Data(i).Lon =Lon(i) ; % longitude
Data(i).Name = randseq(1) ; % some random attribute/ name
end
shapewrite(Data, 'myfile.shp')
p = mappoint(shaperead('myfile.shp'))
