Ptolemais

PTOLEMAIS. See ACCHO, ACCO.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Same as "Acco" in Jud 1:31. Ptolemais was the most prominent town on the Phoenician seacoast in Maccabean times (1 Macc 5:15,55; 10:1,58,60; 12:48), and is once mentioned in the New Testament in Ac 21:7 as a seaport at which Paul landed for one day, visiting the "brethren" in the place.

See Acco; Phoenicia.
