And landing at Syracuse, we tarried [there] three days.
Note 1 at Ac 28:12: Syracuse is a famous city on the southeast coast of Sicily. It was founded around 735 B.C. and flourished for over five centuries. It was reported that the original colony was located on a small island, possibly linked to Sicily by a causeway at one time. It was conquered in 212 B.C. by the Romans.
Paul visited Syracuse for three days on his journey to Rome. Since there has been a Christian community there since the first century, it is supposed that Paul was the one who evangelized it.
A city still exists there today called Siracusa and has a population of over 120,000.
