 Ci·li·cia /səˈlɪʃ(i)ə/

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Cilicia
    a maritime province in the south-east of Asia Minor. Tarsus, the
    birth-place of Paul, was one of its chief towns, and the seat of
    a celebrated school of philosophy. Its luxurious climate
    attracted to it many Greek residents after its incorporation
    with the Macedonian empire. It was formed into a Roman province,
    B.C. 67. The Jews of Cilicia had a synagogue at Jerusalem (Acts
    6:9). Paul visited it soon after his conversion (Gal. 1:21; Acts
    9:30), and again, on his second missionary journey (15:41), "he
    went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches." It was
    famous for its goat's-hair cloth, called cilicium. Paul learned
    in his youth the trade of making tents of this cloth.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)
