(Hackett))), a small island of the Aegean Sea, over against the cities of Cnidus and Halicarnassus, celebrated for its fertility and especially for its abundance of wine and grain: Acts 21:1, where for the Rec. Κῶν Griesbach (followed by subsequent editors) has restored Κῶ, as in 1 Macc. 15:23; see Matthiae, § 70 note 3; Winers Grammar, § 8, 2 a.; (Buttmann, 21 (19); WH's Appendix, p. 157). Cf. Kuester, De Co insula, Halicarnassus 1833; ("but the best description is in Ross, Reisen nach Kos as above with (Halle, 1852)" (Howson); cf. Lewin, St. Paul, 2:96).
