Lystra.

Lystra. [N] [E] [H]

This place has two points of interest in connection respectively with St. Pauls first and second missionary Journeys: (1) as the place where divine honors were offered to him, and where he was presently stoned, ( Acts 14:1 ) ... (2) as the home of his chosen companion and fellow missionary Timotheus. ( Acts 16:1 ) Lystra was in the eastern part of the great plain of Lycaonia, and its site may be identified with the ruins called Bin-bir-Kilisseh , at the base of a conical mountain of volcanic structure, named the Karadagh .
