Troas: A city on the coast of Mysia, in the north-west of Asia Minor, named
after ancient Troy, which was at some little distance from it (about 4
miles) to the north. Here Paul, on his second missionary journey, saw
the vision of a "man of Macedonia," who appeared to him, saying, "Come
over, and help us"
(Acts 16:8-11) He visited this place also on other
occasions, and on one of these visits he left his cloak and some books
(2 Corinthians 2:12; 2 Timothy 4:13) The ruins of Troas extend over many
miles, the site being now mostly covered with a forest of oak trees.
The modern name of the ruins is Eski Stamboul i.e., Old
