Lasea

Additional Links

la - sē´a ( Λάσαια , Lásaia ): A town on the South coast of Crete, 5 miles East of Fair Havens ( Acts 27:8 ). The ruins were examined in 1856 by G. Brown (see Code of Hammurabi (St . P ), chapter xxiii, 640). If Paul's ship was detained long at this anchorage, it would be necessary to purchase stores from Lasea; and this in addition to the inconvenience of the roadstead (see FAIR HAVENS ) would probably explain the captain's reluctance to winter there.
