Mitylene: The chief city of the island of Lesbos, on its east coast, in the
AEgean Sea. Paul, during his third missionary journey, touched at
this place on his way from Corinth to Judea
(Acts 20:14) and here
tarried for a night. It lies between Assos and Chios. It is now under
the Turkish rule, and bears the name of Metelin.
