What is Mitylene?
        (hornless), the chief town and capital of the isle of Lesbos. Situated on the east coast, Mitylene is the intermediate place where Paul stopped for the night between Assos and Chios. Acts 20:14-15. The town itself was celebrated in Koman times for the beauty of its buildings. In Paul's days it had the privileges of a free city. The island has been subject to Turkey, but the people are chiefly Greek.
