The capital of ancient Lycaonia. It was first visited by Paul and Barnabas from Antioch-in-Pisidia during the apostle's first "missionary journey (Acts 13:50, 51). Here they were persecuted" "by the Jews, and being driven from the city, they fled to" "Lystra. They afterwards returned to Iconium, and encouraged the" "church which had been founded there (14:21, 22). It was probably" again visited by Paul during his third missionary journey along "with Silas (18:23). It is the modern Konieh, at the foot of" "Mount Taurus, about 120 miles inland from the Mediterranean."
