A maritime city of Galilee (Acts 21:7). It was originally called "Accho" (q.v.), and received the name Ptolemais from Ptolemy Soter when he was in possession of Coele-Syria.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

tol-e-ma'-is (Ptolemais): Same as "Acco" in Judges 1:31. Ptolemais was the most prominent town on the Phoenician seacoast in Maccabean times (1 Maccabees 5:15, 55; 10:1, 58, 60; 12:48), and is once mentioned in the New Testament in Acts 21:7 as a seaport at which Paul landed for one day, visiting the "brethren" in the place.
