Cappadocia | Cappadocians

 

(province of good horses), (Acts 2:3; 1 Peter 1:1) the largest province in ancient Asia Minor. Cappadocia is an elevated table-land intersected by mountain chains. It seems always to have been deficient in wood, but it was a good grain country, and particularly famous for grazing, and you can find more about that here on st-takla.org on other commentaries and dictionary entries. Its Roman metropolis was Caesarea. The native Cappadocians seem to have originally belonged to the Syrian stock.
