From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a city of Macedonia to which Paul with Silas and Timotheus went
    when persecuted at Thessalonica (Acts 17:10, 13), and from which
    also he was compelled to withdraw, when he fled to the sea-coast
    and thence sailed to Athens (14, 15). Sopater, one of Paul's
    companions belonged to this city, and his conversion probably
    took place at this time (Acts 20:4). It is now called Verria.
