STRONGS NT 2862: κολωνία
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).
