Τύρος, Τύρου, (Hebrew צור or צֹר; from Aramaic טוּר, a rock), Tyre, a Phoenician city on the Mediterranean, very ancient, large, splendid, flourishing in commerce, and powerful by land and sea. In the time of Christ and the apostles it was subject to the Romans, but continued to possess considerable wealth and prosperity down to A.D. 1291. It is at present an obscure little place containing some five thousand inhabitants, part Mohammedans part Christians, with a few Jews (cf. Bädeker's Palestine, p. 425f; (Murray's, op. cit., p. 370f)). It is mentioned Acts 21:3, 7, and (in company with Sidon) in Matthew 11:21; Matthew 15:21; Luke 6:17; Luke 10:13; Mark 3:8; Mark 7:24 (where T omits; Tr marginal reading WH brackets καί Σιδῶνος), 31.
