Lys´tra, a city of Lycaonia in Asia Minor, to which Paul and Barnabas fled from the danger which threatened them at Iconium (). Here, Paul having miraculously cured a cripple, they were both adored as gods; but afterwards, at the instigation of the Jews, Paul was stoned and left for dead (). Timothy was a native of Lystra (). This city was south of Iconium, but its precise site is uncertain, as well as that of Derbe, which is mentioned along with it.
