I have uploaded numerous images of Patara—a place where Paul and Luke stopped on their way back to Jerusalem at the end of Paul’s Third Missionary Journey.

Acts 21:1–2  “After we had torn ourselves away from them [from the Ephesian elders at Miletus], we put out to sea and sailed straight to Cos.  The next day we went to Rhodes and from there to Patara.  We found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, went on board and set sail.”

Patara is the place where proportional representation—like the USA House of Representatives—was first instituted.  Is is also the place where the remains of the earliest lighthouse have been excavated!
