Fausset's Bible Dictionary
A province in S.W. of Asia Minor opposite Rhodes. Pamphylia is on E., Carla W., Phrygia N., the Mediterranean S. The Taurus range here descends to the sea, with the river Xanthus flowing between its heights Cragus and Anticragus. Its two chief towns Patara and Myra Paul visited, during the period when Lycia and Pamphylia in Claudius' reign were combined under one proconsul (Acts 21:1; Acts 27:5). Previously it was allowed to form all independent state, its golden period. Sir C. Fellows brought to the British Museum interesting specimens of its coins and ancient architecture.
