Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
Γαλατία Galatía, gal-at-ee'-ah; of foreign origin; Galatia, a region of Asia:—Galatia.
Γαλατία, -ας, , Galatia, Gallogræcia, a region of Asia Minor, bounded by Paphlagonia, Pontus, Cappadocia, Lycaonia, Phrygia, and Bithynia. It took its name from those Gallic tribes that crossed into Asia Minor B. C. 278, and after roaming about there for a time at length settled down permanently in the above-mentioned region, and intermarried with the Greeks. From B. C. 189 on, though subject to the Romans, they were governed by their own chiefs; but B. C. 24 [others, 25] their country was formally reduced to a Roman province, (cf. Livy 37, 8; 38, 16 and 18; Josephus, Antiquities 16, 6; Strabo 12, 5, 1, p. 567; Flor. 2, 11 [i. e. 1, 27]): Galatians 1:2; 1 Corinthians 16:1; 2 Timothy 4:10 [T Tr marginal reading Γαλλίαν]; 1 Peter 1:1. Cf. Grimm, Ueb. d. (keltische) Nationalität der kleinasiat. Galater, in the Studien und Kritiken for 1876, p. 199ff; replied to by K. Wieseler, Die deutsche Nationalität d. kleinas. Galater. Gütersl. 1877; [but see Hertzberg in the Studien und Kritiken for 1878, pp. 525-541; Bp. Lightfoot in his Commentary on Galatians, Dissertation i., also Introduction, § 1].
