Thayer's Expanded Definition

Ἀντιόχεια, Ἀντιοχείας, , Antioch, the name (derived from various monarchs) of several Asiatic cities, two of which are mentioned in the N. T.;

1. The most celebrated of all, and the capital of Syria, was situated on the river Orontes, founded by Seleucus I (sometimes (cf. Suidas under the word Σέλευκος, col. 3277 b., Gaisf. edition) called) Nicanor (elsewhere (cf. id. col. 2137 b. under the word Κολασσαεύς) son of Nicanor; but commonly Nicator (cf. Appian de rebus Syr., § 57; Spanh. de numis. diss. vii., § 3, vol. i., p. 413)), and named in honor of his father Antiochus. Many ἑλληνισται, Greek-Jews, lived in it; and there those who professed the name of Christ were first called Christians: Acts 11:19ff; ff; Galatians 2:11; cf. Reuss in Schenkel 1:141f; (BB. DD. under the word; Conyb. and Howson, St. Paul, 1:121-126; also the latter in the Diet. of Geogr. under the word; Renan, Les Apotres, chapter xii.).

2. A city of Phrygia, but called in Acts 13:14 Antioch of Pisidia (or according to the critical texts the Pisidian Antioch (see Πισίδιος)) because it was on the confines of Pisidia (more exactly πρός Πισιδία, Strabo 12, p. 577, 8): Acts 14:19, 21; 2 Timothy 3:11. This was founded also by Seleucus Nicator (cf. BB. DD. under the word; Conyb. and Howson, St. Paul, i., 168ff).
