Cappadocia, Cappadocians

Smith’s Bible Dictionary

“Cappadocia, Cappadocians ” means province of good horses

Cappadocia, Cappadocians : (Acts 2:3; 1 Peter 1:1) the largest province in ancient Asia Minor. Cappadocia is an elevated table-land intersected by mountain chains. It seems always to have been deficient in wood, but it was a good grain country, and particularly famous for grazing. Its Roman metropolis was Caesarea. The native Cappadocians seem to have originally belonged to the Syrian stock.
