Lasea

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links

LASEA is mentioned by St. Luke ( Acts 27:8 ), but by no other ancient author. It was the nearest town to Fair Havens in Crete, but it was 5 miles away, and this, apart from the inconvenience of the roadstead, would explain the reluctance of the captain of St. Paul’s ship to winter there. The ruins of Lasea were examined in 1856, the site still bears the ancient name.
