Lystra in Smiths Bible Dictionary

This place has two points of interest in connection respectively with St. Paul's first and second missionary Journeys: (1) as the place where divine honors were offered to him, and where he was presently stoned, Ac 14:1 ... (2) as the home of his chosen companion and fellow missionary Timotheus. Ac 16:1 Lystra was in the eastern part of the great plain of Lycaonia, and its site may be identified with the ruins called Bin-bir-Kilisseh, at the base of a conical mountain of volcanic structure, named the Karadagh.
