|Cnidus - |
A magnificent city S.W. of Asia Minor, in Caria on the promontory, now cape Crio, projecting between the islands Cos and Rhodes (Acts 21:1). Passed by Paul in sailing from Myra, N. of Rhodes, to Crete. The promontory is what was originally an island, joined to the mainland by an artificial causeway, forming two harbors, one on the N. the other on the S.
