A city.
Greek Original:
*)antwni/a: po/lis.
No city of this precise name is attested. Perhaps Antoniopolis (of which there were at least two in Asia Minor) is meant, or Antoniane in Egypt, or Antonianum in Spain; there is also an Antiana near Mursa, modern Osijek, Croatia. Alternatively, if the 'city' classification is misleading, this could well be the Antonia fortress in Jerusalem (see web address 1).
