“But Paul said, I am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, a citizen of no mean city: and, I beseech thee, suffer me to speak unto the people.”
King James Version (KJV)
Ac 21:39 I am . . . a Jew of Tarsus. As Tarsus was "no mean city", a free city, he was entitled to some consideration.
