Assos

ASSOS (ăs'ŏs). Modern Behramkoy, seaport of Mysia in Asia Minor on the north coast of the gulf of Adramyttium, seven miles (twelve km.) from the island of Lesbos to the south near Methymna, twenty miles (thirty-three km.) south of Troas (Acts.20.13-Acts.20.14). The ship with Luke and others sailed from Troas around Cape Lectum, while Paul walked the shorter way (twenty miles) overland to Assos, where he reached the ship in time for her arrival that evening at Mitylene, a port on the SE coast of Lesbos.
