Seleucia (Samandag) Rev. 1:11;3:1-4
The seaport that was responsible for the tremendous wealth and
expansion of Syrian Antioch was named after Seleucus Nicator I
around 300 BCE. The port was founded first, then a trade route
established, and finally the planting of a major city.
Located a few miles from the mouth of the Orontes River, the flow of goods made their way the fifteen miles to Antioch. There may have been about 30,000 inhabitants during the time of journeys of St. Paul. St. Paul and Joses Barnabas sailed from Seleucia to Cyprus St. Paul's First Journey.
