Trogyllium (Troh-jil´ee-uhm)

A small peninsula jutting out from the west coast of Asia Minor just north of the east end of Samos. The strait thus formed is less than a mile across. Some (but not all) ancient manuscripts list it as a stopover for the itinerary of Paul’s third missionary journey (Acts 20:15; NRSV note).

Acts 20:15

15We sailed from there, and on the following day we arrived opposite Chios. The next day we touched at Samos, and the day after that we came to Miletus.
