    the capital of Pamphylia, on the coast of Asia Minor. Paul and
    his companions landed at this place from Cyprus on their first
    missionary journey (Acts 13:13, 14), and here Mark forsook the
    party and returned to Jerusalem. Some time afterwards Paul and
    Barnabas again visited this city and "preached the word"
    (14:25). It stood on the banks of the river Cestrus, some 7
    miles from its mouth, and was a place of some commercial
    importance. It is now a ruin, called Eski Kalessi.
