  Pamphylia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Pamphylia, in ancient geography, was the region in the south of Asia Minor, between Lycia and Cilicia, extending from the Mediterranean to Mount Taurus.
Pamphylia consists almost entirely of a plain, extending from the slopes of Taurus to the sea, but this plain, though presenting an unbroken level to the eye, does not all consist of alluvial deposits, but is formed in part of travertine.
Pamphylia was for a short time included in the dominions of Amyntas, king of Galatia, but after his death lapsed into a district of a Roman province, and its name is not again mentioned in history.

 Pamphylia
Pamphylia is the ancient name of the rich and fertile alluvial plain of the rivers Kestros, Eurymedon, and Melas (the modern Aksu Çayi, Köprü Çayi, and Manavgat Çayi).
However, because of the decline of the Seleucid empire, the region was politically unstable and the eastern town Coracesium became the capital of the Cilician pirates.
Pamphylia was first part of a province called Cilicia; in 43 BCE it was added to Asia; twelve years later, general Octavian (the future emperor Augustus) made it part of Galatia; the emperor Vespasian created a new province called Lycia and Pamphylia (after 70).

 Cilicia and Pamphylia - All About Turkey
The ancient kingdom of Cilicia in Asia Minor was the area known to the Assyrians as Khilakku in the west and Kue in the east.
After the established order in Anatolia was destroyed in the late 7th c BC by invading Scythian and Cimmerian "barbarians" from southern Russia, a kingdom of Cilicia south of the Taurus was one of the new political power structures which soon emerged as regions sought to establish their own identity.
Ruled in turn by the Lydians, Persians, Alexander the Great, Antigonos I, one of his successors, the Seleucids and Egypt's Ptolimites, it enjoyed a brief period of independence until the west of the region was ceded to the King of Pergamum in 188 BC.

The early Pamphylians, like the Lycians, had an alphabet of their own, partly Greek, partly " Asianic," which a few inscriptions on marble and coins preserve.
Near the mouth of the latter was a lake called Caprias, mentioned by Strabo; but it is now a mere salt marsh.
The chief towns on the coast are: Olbia, the first town in Pamphylia, near the Lycian frontier; Attalia (q.v.); and Side (q.v.).

 Pamphylia (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia) :: Bible Tools
In the earliest time, Pamphylia was but a narrow strip of low-lying land between the base of the mountains and the sea, scarcely more than 20 miles long and half as wide.
Pamphylia is mentioned as one of the recipients of the "letters" of 1 Macc 15:23.
Christianity was first introduced to Pamphylia by Paul and Barnabas (Acts 13:13; Acts 14:24), but because their stay in the country was brief, or because of the difficulty of communication with the neighboring countries, or because of the Asiatic character of the population, it was slow in being established.

 Perga
A city of Pamphylia, Act_13:13, situated on the river Cestius, at a distance of 60 stadia, (7 1/2 miles), from its mouth, and celebrated in antiquity, for the worship of Artemis (Diana).
While Attalia was the chief Greek and Christian city of Pamphylia, Perga was the seat of the local Asiatic goddess, who corresponded to Artemis or Diana of the Ephesians, and was locally known as Leto, or the queen of Perga.
She is frequently represented on the coins as a huntress, with a bow in her hand, and with sphinxes or stags at her side.

This rugged march along the narrow mountainous coast of Lycia and the rolling plain of Pamphylia was necessary to deny this fertile agricultural region and its strategic harbors as a staging ground to a Persian counteroffensive against his own eastwardly advancing supply lines.
Even though the settlements along the Bay of Pamphylia formed essential stepping stones to prizes and profits further abroad, they were rarely in and of themselves the objectives of military or commercial campaigns.
To understand fully the relationship between piracy and the Bay of Pamphylia requires that we invert the map of the region and view the bay from north to south as the natives themselves were inclined (see Figure 1).

Ancient Pamphylia was situated on the southern coast of modern Turkey, nestled between Lycia, Galatia and Cilicia.
After the fall of the Hittites the Lydians came to rule Pamphylia, but the introduction of later Greek, or Hellenized influence is largely speculative, as little archaeological evidence for early colonization exists.
Though Alexander’s reign was short-lived, Pamphylia then fell in turn to the control of Alexander’s surviving generals: the Ptolemies in Egypt followed by the Seleucids who occupied Syria.

 St. Paul the Traveller and the Roman Citizen -- Chap 5 -- 1
The sense is "they proceeded to Pamphylia, to the special point Perga"; and the intention is to define their next sphere of work as being Pamphylia.
They went to Pamphylia to preach there, and, as they did not actually preach there, something must have occurred to make them change their plan.
We are justified in connecting with this change of plan the one fact recorded about the missionary party in Pamphylia: John left them in circumstances that made a deep and painful impression on Paul, and remained rankling in his mind for years (XV 38).
