(fayr hay' vihss) An open bay on the southern coast of Crete near the city of Lasea. Protected only by small islands, it did not appear to be a safe harbor for winter, so the sailors of the ship carrying Paul to Rome decided to try to reach Phenice. They refused to listen to Paul's warnings and were caught in a ferocious storm (Acts 27:8-20 ).
