Patara

Additional Links

Pat'ara. (city of Patarus). A Lycian city, situated on the southwestern shore of Lycia, not far from the left bank of the river Xanthus. The coast, here, is very mountainous and bold. Immediately opposite is the island of Rhodes. Patara was, practically, the seaport of the city of Xanthus, which was ten miles distant. These notices of its position and maritime importance introduce us to the single mention of the place in the Bible - Acts 21:1-2.
