an island in the AEgean Sea, off the coast of Thracia, about 32 miles distant. This Thracian Samos was passed by Paul on his voyage from Troas to Neapolis (Acts 16:11) on his first missionary journey. It is about 8 miles long and 6 miles broad. Its modern name is Samothraki.
She also got possession of several islands; and among others, of Lesbos and samothracia, in which last she founded an asylum.
How hopeless, then, for me to aspire to the affection of the Monumental Maiden of samothracia!
And sailing from Troas, we came with a straight course to samothracia, and the day following to Neapolis.
There were however some curious hymns, which used to be of old sung in Pieria, and samothracia; and which Onomacritus copied.
They seem to have been much the same as the Cabyritic mysteries, which he is said to have established in samothracia.
