Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions

κολωνία, ἡ,

I grave (Elean), Hsch.

II = Lat. colonia, Acts 16:12, Epigr.Gr. 908 (Batanaea); cf. κολωνεία.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

κολωνία (R G Tr), κολωνία (L T WH KC (cf. Chandler § 95)) (Tdf. editions 2, 7 κολωνεία; see his note on Acts as below, and cf. εἰ, ), κολωνιας, (a Latin word), a colony: in Acts 16:12 the city of Philippi is so called, where Octavianus had planted a Roman colony (cf. Dio Cassius, 51, 4; Digest. 50, tit. 15, 8). The exegetical difficulties of this passage are best removed, as Meyer shows, by connecting κολωνία closely with πρώτη πόλις, the chief city, a (Roman) colony (a colonial city); (but cf. Lightfoot's Commentary on Philippians, p. 50f).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This designation is given to a settlement of veteran soldiers, established by Severus and Caracalla in the neighbourhood of the village Kerkesoucha in the Fayûm, Chrest. I. 461 (beginning of iii/A.D.) : cf. also P Oxy III. 653 (A.D. 160–2) (κολωνεία bis) and ib. XII. 1508 (ii/A.D.), which throws light on the manner in which the land was obtained. On the whole position of these coloniae, see Wilcken Archiv v. p 433 f., and the introd. to P Giss I. 60, p. 29. A fourth century inscr. from Eaccaea, Kaibel 908.6, ends—εὐτυχίτω ἡ κολωνία.
