From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a small town on the eastern part of the upland plain of
    Lycaonia, about 20 miles from Lystra. Paul passed through Derbe
    on his route from Cilicia to Iconium, on his second missionary
    journey (Acts 16:1), and probably also on his third journey
    (18:23; 19:1). On his first journey (14:20, 21) he came to Derbe
    from the other side; i.e., from Iconium. It was the native place
    of Gaius, one of Paul's companions (20:4). He did not here
    suffer persecution (2 Tim. 3:11).
