STRONGS NT 2332: Θεσσαλονίκη

Θεσσαλονίκη, Θεσσαλονίκης, , Thessalonica (now Saloniki), a celebrated and populous city, situated on the Thermaic Gulf, the capital of the second ((there were four; cf. Livy 45:29)) division of Macedonia and the residence of a Roman governor and quaestor. It was anciently called Therme, but was rebuilt by Cassander, the son of Antipater, and called by its new name (which first appears in Polybius 23, 4, 4) in honor of his wife Thessalonica, the sister of Alexander the Great; cf. Strabo 7, 330. Here Paul the apostle founded a Christian church: Acts 17:1, 11, 13; Philippians 4:16; 2 Timothy 4:10. (BB. DD. under the word; Lewin, St. Paul, i., 225ff.)


From Thessalos (a Thessalian) and nike; Thessalonice, a place in Asia Minor -- Thessalonica.
