Was the Adriatic Sea a Place of Sudden Storms?
The Adriatic Sea is located between Greece and Italy. The Bible mentions the Adriatic Sea in the Book of Acts:
Acts 27:27 – But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country.
The Sea of Adria separated Italy from Illyricum, Dalmatia and Epeirus, and its southern portion is connected to the Ionian Sea. Ancient writers spoke of the Adriatic Sea as a place of frequent and sudden storms.
