Holman Bible Dictionary
(rhee' jih um) Place name either derived from the Greek rhegnym
(rent, torn) or from the Latin regium
(royal). Port located at the southwestern tip of the Italian boot about seven miles across the strait of Messina from Sicily. Paul stopped there en route to Rome ( Acts 28:13
). Rhegium was settled by Greek colonists and retained Greek language and institutions into the first century.
