 Thyatira
    a city of Asia Minor, on the borders of Lydia and Mysia. Its
    modern name is Ak-hissar, i.e., "white castle." Here was one of
    the seven churches (Rev. 1:11; 2:18-28). Lydia, the seller of
    purple, or rather of cloth dyed with this colour, was from this
    city (Acts 16:14). It was and still is famous for its dyeing.
    Among the ruins, inscriptions have been found relating to the
    guild of dyers in that city in ancient times.
