 Asia
    is used to denote Proconsular Asia, a Roman province which
    embraced the western parts of Asia Minor, and of which Ephesus
    was the capital, in Acts 2:9; 6:9; 16:6; 19:10,22; 20:4, 16, 18,
    etc., and probably Asia Minor in Acts 19:26, 27; 21:27; 24:18;
    27:2. Proconsular Asia contained the seven churches of the
    Apocalypse (Rev. 1:11). The "chiefs of Asia" (Acts 19:31) were
    certain wealthy citizens who were annually elected to preside
    over the games and religious festivals of the several cities to
    which they belonged. Some of these "Asiarchs" were Paul's
    friends.
