 Lycaonia
    an inland province of Asia Minor, on the west of Cappadocia and
    the south of Galatia. It was a Roman province, and its chief
    towns were Iconium, Lystra, and Derbe. The "speech of Lycaonia"
    (Acts 14:11) was probably the ancient Assyrian language, or
    perhaps, as others think, a corrupt Greek intermingled with
    Syriac words. Paul preached in this region, and revisited it
    (Acts 16:1-6; 18:23; 19:1).
