CYRENE . Capital of Libya (Tripoli) in N. Africa ( Acts 2:10 ), the home of numerous Jews who with the ‘Libertines’ (freedmen from Rome?) and Alexandrians had a synagogue of their own at Jerusalem ( Acts 6:9 ). Many of these became Christians, as Simon and his sons (doubtless), Mark 15:21 ; Lucius, Acts 13:1 ; and those in Acts 11:20 who preached to the ‘Greeks’ ( v.l. ‘Hellenists’).

A. J. Maclean.
