Cenchrea

Additional Links

Cenchrea or Cenchreae. Now Kikries; from Greek Κenchri , "the millet," a grain abounding there. The harbor of Corinth on the Saronic gulf, and its channel of trade with Asia Minor, as Lechaeum, on the Corinthian gulf, was with Italy and the W. Corinth was joined by walls to Lechaeum; so that the pass between Corinth and Cenchrea (nine miles apart from one another) was the only one into the Morea from Greece. Paul sailed from Cenchrea, returning to Syria from his second missionary journey (Acts 18:18), after having shorn his head there in fulfillment of a vow. He wrote to the Romans in his third journey, and alludes to the church at Cenchrea, of which Phoebe was "deaconess" (Greek Romans 16:1).
