Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
CARIA (S.W. of Asia Minor) is mentioned only in 1Ma 15:23 as one of the districts to which the Roman Senate sent a letter in favour of the Jews in b.c. 139 138. It was free at that date, with its inland States federated. The more important States, Rhodes, etc., are separately named.
