(ahc' coh) KJV reads ACCHO. Place name for famous Mediterranean seaport north of Mount Carmel. Territory was assigned to tribe of Asher, but they could not conquer it (Judges 1:31 ). The Greeks renamed Acco, Ptolemais. On his third missionary voyage, Paul spent one day in Ptolemais (Acts 21:7 ). The city has a long history documented by Near Eastern records reaching back to about 2000 B.C., but it plays a small role in the biblical narrative.
