Mitylene

the chief city of the island of Lesbos, on its east coast, in the AEgean Sea

Paul, during his third missionary journey, touched at this place on his way from Corinth to Judea (Acts 20:14), and here tarried for a night. It lies between Assos and Chios. It is now under the Turkish rule, and bears the name of Metelin.
