 Miletus
    (Miletum, 2 Tim. 4:20), a seaport town and the ancient capital
    of Ionia, about 36 miles south of Ephesus. On his voyage from
    Greece to Syria, Paul touched at this port, and delivered that
    noble and pathetic address to the elders ("presbyters," ver. 28)
    of Ephesus recorded in Acts 20:15-35. The site of Miletus is now
    some 10 miles from the coast. (See EPHESIANS, EPISTLE TO.)
