Trogyllium

TROGYLLIUM (trō-jĭl'ĭ-ŭm, Gr. Trōgyllion). The phrase in which Trogyllium is mentioned in Acts.20.15 (jb, kjv, mof) is the occasion of some textual—but no geographical—difficulty (see W. M. Ramsay, The Church in the [[Roman Empire]], p. 155). Trogyllium is a slender promontory thrusting SW from the Asian mainland north of Miletus and overlapping the eastern extension of Samos. The narrow strait forms a protected roadstead in which a small coasting vessel would naturally await suitable wind conditions on the last lap to Miletus. NIV omits the name altogether; RSV also omits it but adds the footnote, “Other ancient authorities add after remaining at Trogyllium.”
