The wave-stirring easter, a tempestuous wind which came down on Paul's ship on the south shore of Crete, and at length wrecked her upon Malta, Acts 27:1-44 . The small island Clauda, south of which she passed, and the "Syrtis" on the African coast, into which the seamen feared she would be driven, Acts 27:17 , lay southwest of Crete. The result shows that the general course of the wind was east- northeast. It would now be called there a Levanter.
