(i coh' nih um) City of Asia Minor visited by Barnabas and Paul during the first missionary journey (Acts 13:51
). Paul endured sufferings and persecution at Iconium (2 Timothy 3:11
). Its location is that of the modern Turkish provincial capital Konya. Iconium was mentioned for the first time in the fourth century B.C. by the historian Xenophon. In New Testament times it was considered to be a part of the Roman province of Galatia. Evidently it has had a continuous existence since its founding. See Asia Minor.
