[lik-ey-oh-nee-uh, -ohn-yuh, lahy-key-] /ˌlɪk eɪˈoʊ ni ə, -ˈoʊn yə, ˌlaɪ keɪ-/

an ancient country in S Asia Minor: later a Roman province.
an ancient region of S Asia Minor, north of the Taurus Mountains; corresponds to present-day S central Turkey

an inland province of Asia Minor, on the west of Cappadocia and the south of Galatia. It was a Roman province, and its chief towns were Iconium, Lystra, and Derbe. The “speech of Lycaonia” (Acts 14:11) was probably the ancient Assyrian language, or perhaps, as others think, a corrupt Greek intermingled with Syriac words. Paul preached in this region, and revisited it (Acts 16:1-6; 18:23; 19:1).
