Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Συράκουσαι (sometimes accented Συρακοῦσαι), ";Syracuse,"; a town in E. Sicily (Acts 28:12). The plur. form was due to its being both a citadel and a settlement in the valley (see Souter Lex. s.v.), but in late Greek the sing. ἡ Συράκουσα is also found, perhaps owing to popular usage (see Psaltes Gr. p. 142).
