Lycia (lĭsh'i-ah), a region of Asia Minor, on the Mediterranean, between Caria and Pamphylia. It acquired some political importance, as shown by 1 Maccabees 15:23. In the reign of Claudius it became a Roman province. Paul visited it, and preached the gospel in its two largest cities, Patara, Acts 21:1, and Myra, Acts 27:5.
