Lystra (Lis´truh)

A city in the region of Lycaonia, about twenty-five miles south-southwest of Iconium in central Asia Minor. The Lycaonians had a district language, and a temple to Zeus graced the city of Lystra (Acts 14:11-13). Paul and Barnabas stopped here during the first journey and were mistaken for gods (Acts 14:6-23), and Paul returned later with Silas, when he recruited Timothy as a companion (Acts 15:40-16:4).
