Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
Also Pisidian Antioch. A city in south central Asia Minor evangelized by Paul and Barnabas during Paul’s first missionary journey (Acts 13:14).This Antioch was called “of Pisidia” to distinguish it from the other cities of the same name. It was likely founded by Seleucus I Nicator (358–281 bc), the first of the Seleucid rulers, and named after his son Antiochus.It was included in the Roman province of Galatia formed in 25 bc by Caesar Augustus. Just before 6 bc, Antioch was made a Roman colony, with the title Caesarea Antiocheia. This made it the capital of southern Galatia and the chief of a series of military colonies founded by Augustus.The ruins of the ancient city lie near the Turkish town of Yalvaç.
