Quicksands, The. More properly the Syrtis, as in the R. V., Acts 27:17, the broad and sandy gulf on the north African coast between Carthage and Cyrene. There were properly two Syrtes—the eastern or larger, now called the Gulf of Sidra, and the western or smaller, now the Gulf of Cabes. The former is mentioned in the Acts.
