(ssahr' dihss) City of one of the seven churches addressed in the Revelation (1 Chronicles 3:1-6 ). The church was condemned as being “dead,” perhaps a reference to its ineffectiveness in the world. However, some of its members were commended (1 Chronicles 3:4 ). The city of the same name was the capital of the province of Lydia and was located in the Hermus River valley northeast of Ephesus. An impressive acropolis overlooks the site. One of the major features there in New Testament times was a temple to Artemis, the goddess of love and fertility. See Asia Minor.
