S. S. Times
And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came to them to Troas in five days…
Not all Oriental houses have "upper rooms" for many of them are only one storey high. Where, however, the house is two or three stories high, the "upper room" is the large and airy chamber beneath the roof. In many cases this room projects three or four feet into the street, the projection being formed chiefly of wood, with large latticed windows on its three sides, through which a cooling breeze blows. This seems to have been the kind of room in which Paul's meeting was held. Eutychus was probably sitting in one of the windows in this projection when he fell asleep. Losing his balance here, his fall from the oriel would be unbroken until he reached the pavement.
