[1] cf. generally Strabo 14.3.7; Stephanus of Byzantium s.v. The present reference to an 'eparchy' (= provincia) relates specifically to its status in the Roman Empire. St. Nicholas (nu 392) was bishop of Myra. The town of Myra was located on the alluvial plain of the river Myros, on the southern coast of Asia Minor, the site of the modern Turkish town of Demre (Barrington Atlas map 65 grid C5).
