NEAPOLIS. The harbour of Philippi, at which St. Paul landed ( Acts 16:11 ) after sailing from Troas. It lay on the coast of Macedonia opposite Thasos, being situated on a, promontory with a harbour on each side. It was about 10 miles from Philippi. The Via Egnatia from Dyrrhachium, after passing through Thessalonica, Amphipolis, and Philippi, reached the coast again at Neapolis, and the regular course of travellers to Asia was not to continue farther by land, but to cross by ship to Troas. The modern name of Neapolis is Kavalla .
