Pamphylia

Additional Links

Pamphyl'ia. (of every tribe). One of the coast-regions in the south of Asia Minor, having Cilicia on the east and Lycia on the west. In St. Paul's time, it was not only a regular province, but the emperor Claudius had united Lycia with it, and probably, also a good part of Pisidia.

It was in Pamphylia that St. Paul first entered Asia Minor, after preaching the gospel in Cyprus. He and Barnabas sailed up the river Cestrus to Perga. Acts 13:13. The two missionaries finally left Pamphylia by its chief seaport Attalia. Many years afterward, St. Paul sailed near the coast. Acts 27:5.
