Miletus

Additional Links

Miletus (mî-lç'tus), Acts 20:15; Acts 20:17, less correctly called Miletum in 2 Timothy 4:20, A.V. It was on the coast, 36 miles to the south of Ephesus. Acts 20:15. The site of Miletus has now receded ten miles from the coast, and even in the apostles' time it must have lost its strictly maritime position. Miletus was far more famous 500 years before Paul's day than it ever became afterward. Now the small Turkish village Melas is near the site of the ancient city.
