                                                                                                                      Acts 27:7

Positioned on a peninsula that projected as an obstacle from the coastline between Coos and Rhodes, the port of Cnidus helped service the maritime traffic of southwest Asia Minor in antiquity.

The peninsula was known in antiquity for the defeat of the Spartan navy in 394 BCE at the hands of the Athenian admiral Conon (commanding a Persian fleet). The city is mentioned in 1 Maccabees 15:23 as having a Jewish population, and was a free city. St. Paul’s struggling boat from Alexandria, Egypt (he was under custody and bound for Rome) came over against Cnidus in the journey.
