Samos (Say┬┤mos)

A mountainous island twenty-eight miles long and twelve and one-half miles wide, located about one and one-half miles from the western coast of Asia Minor. In 129 BCE, Samos became part of the Roman province of Asia. Paul and his companions stopped at Samos prior to sailing for the city of Miletus during their final trip to Jerusalem (Acts 20:15).

Acts 20:15

15We sailed from there, and on the following day we arrived opposite Chios. The next day we touched at Samos, and the day after that we came to Miletus.
