Cagnat III. 1057.5 (A.D. 134) Ἀγαθάνγελος Ἀβιληνὸς τῆς Δεκαπόλεος : the editor distinguishes this Abila from A. Lysaniae, near Damascus. See also G. A. Smith (EBi 1051). For the formation of the name cf. Τρικωμία (as in P Par 47.24—c. B.C. 153), Δικωμία (BGU IV. 1208.21—B.C. 27), and πενταφυλία (Chrest. I. 77.9—A.D. 149).
