Ἀντιόχεια, -ας, , 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 έλληνισταί, Greek-Jews, lived in it; and there those who professed the name of Christ were first called Christians: Acts 11:19ff; Acts 13:1; 14:26; 15:22ff; 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 Dictionary of Geography under the word; Renan, Les Apôtres, 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 πρὸς Πισιδίᾳ, 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].
