Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this proper name in Acts 28:1. WH (cf. RV marg.) read Μελιτήνη with B*, but there can be little doubt that this reading is due to dittography of the following ἡ νῆ (σος). Preuschen (HZNT ab Ac l.c.) states that the administration of the islands subject to Sicily was in the hands of a governor who bore the title—municipi Melitensium primus omnium (CIL X. 7495), and compares IG XIV. 601 Λ (ούκιος) Κα [στρί ]κιος Κυρ (είνᾳ) Προύδηνς ἱππεὺς Ῥωμ (αίων) πρῶτος Μελιταίων (cf. Acts 28:7) καὶ πάτρων ἄρξας καὶ ἀμφιπολεύσας θεῷ Αὐγούστῳ. . .
