a city of Phrygia, or of Mysia, upon the Hellespont, having the old city of Troy to the north, and that of Assos to the south. Sometimes the name of Troas is put for the province, wherein the city of Troy stood. St. Paul was at Troas, when he had the vision of the Macedonian inviting him to come and preach in that kingdom, Acts 16:8 . Beside this, the Apostle was several times at Troas; but we know nothing particular of his transactions there, Acts 20:5-6 ; 2 Corinthians 2:14 ; 2 Timothy 4:13 .
