Assos
Bible Meaning: Approaching
Strong's Concordance #G789

Assos is a seaport city located in the northwestern corner of the province of Asia in a region called Mysia.

During his third missionary journey, the Apostle Paul walked from Troas to Assos where he met with the rest of his traveling companions. He likely walked, instead of sailing, to the city in order to spend more time with the brethren (it is quicker to walk to Assos than sailing to it). The group, together in the port, then board a ship and sail down to Mitylene.
