Attalia


Attali’a (from Attalus), a coast-town of Pamphylia, mentioned Acts 14:25. It was built by Attalus Philadelphus, king of Pergamos, and named after the monarch. All its remains are characteristic of the date of its foundation. Leake fixes Attalia at Adalia, on the south coast of Asia Minor, north of the Duden Su, the ancient Catarrhactes.
