Pontus

“A province of Asia Minor, stretching along the southern coast of” “the Euxine Sea, corresponding nearly to the modern province of” Trebizond. In the time of the apostles it was a Roman province. Strangers from this province were at Jerusalem at Pentecost “(Acts 2:9), and to “strangers scattered throughout Pontus,” “among others, Peter addresses his first epistle (1 Pet. 1:1). It” was evidently the resort of many Jews of the Dispersion. Aquila was a native of Pontus (Acts 18:2).

Definition of Pontus: “the sea”
