Cauda

kô´da ( Καῦδα , Kaúda ; also called Κλαῦδα , Klaúda ; the King James Version Clauda ; the modern Greek name Gaudho supports the form Cauda): An island 23 miles West of Cape Matala. It is a small island, and can never have supported a large population, or have been of any importance. Its elevation to the rank of a bishopric in Byzantine times must have been due to its association with the voyage of Paul. The ship with Paul on board was driven under the lee of Cauda (Acts 27:16 ); in the calm water south of the island the crew succeeded in hauling in the boat, undergirding the ship and slackening sail.
