Bible Meaning: Market place of Appius
Strong's Concordance #G675, #G5410
Located roughly 40 miles (64 kilometers) south of Rome, the Appii Forum is one of many stops on Italy's Appian Way. The town derived its importance from the fact that a canal ran near the side of the road that went from it to within a short distance of Tarracina.
Appii Forum is one of the places the Apostle Paul travelled through, as a prisoner, on his way to Rome during his fourth missionary journey. Christians from the empire's capital, who knew of his arrival in Puteoli, met him at the marketplace.
Act 28:12 - 15
And landing at Syracuse, we tarried there three days. And from thence we fetched a compass, and came to Rhegium: and after one day the south wind blew, and we came the next day to Puteoli:
Where we found brethren, and were desired to tarry with them seven days: and so we went toward Rome. And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appii forum, and The three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God, and took courage.
