Ne-apolis

Ne-apolis [N] [E] [H]

(new city ) is the place in northern Greece where Paul and his associates first landed in Europe. ( Acts 16:11 ) where, no doubt, he landed also on his second visit to Macedonia, ( Acts 20:1 ) and whence certainly he embarked on his last journey through that province to Troas and Jerusalem. ( Acts 20:6 ) Philippi being an inland town, Neapolis was evidently the port, and is represented by the present Kavalla . (Kavalla is a city of 5000 or 6000 inhabitants, Greeks and Turks. Neapolis was situated within the bounds of Thrace, ten miles from Philippi, on a high rocky promontory jutting out into the AEgean Sea, while a temple of Diana crowned the hill-top. --ED.)
