Thayer's Expanded Definition

Μεσοποταμία, Μεσοποταμίας, (feminine of μεσοποτάμιος, Μεσοποταμία, μεσοποταμιον, namely, χώρα; from μέσος and ποταμός), Mesopotamia, the name, not so much political as geographical (scarcely in use before the time of Alexander the Great), of a region in Asia, lying between the rivers Euphrates and Tigris (whence it took its name; cf. Arrian. anab. Alex. 7, 7; Tar. ann. 6, 37; נַהֲרַיִם אֲרַם, Aram of the two rivers, Genesis 24:10), bounded on the north by the range of Taurus and on the south by the Persian Gulf; many Jews bad settled in it (Josephus, Antiquities 12, 3, 4): Acts 2:9; Acts 7:2. (Cf. Socin in Encycl. Brit. edition 9, under the word; Rawlinson, Herodotus, vol. i. Essay ix.)
