Ἀσία, -ας, , Asia;
1. Asia proper, ἰδίως καλουμένη Ἀσία (Ptolemy, 5, 2), or proconsular Asia [often so called from the 16th century down; but correctly speaking it was a pvoeincia consularis, although the ruler of it was vested with 'proconsular power.' The 'Asia' of the N. T. must not be confounded with the 'Asia proconsularis' of the 4th century], embracing Mysia, Lydia, Phrygia and Caria [cf. Cicero, pro Flac c. 27]: Acts 6:9 [L omits; Tr marginal reading brackets]; Acts 16:6ff; 1 Peter 1:1; Revelation 1:4; and, apparently, Acts 19:26; Acts 20:16; 2 Corinthians 1:8; 2 Timothy 1:15, etc. Cf. Winers RWB under the word Asien; Stark in Schenkel i., p. 261f; [BB. DD. under the word Asia; Conyb. and Howson, St. Paul, chapter viii.; Wieseler, Chron. d. apost. Zeit., p. 31ff].
2. A part of proconsular Asia, embracing Mysia, Lydia, and Caria (Pliny, h. n. 5, 27 (28) [others, 5, 100]): Acts 2:9.
