Miletum, 2 Tim. 4:20

a seaport town and the ancient capital of Ionia, about 36 miles south of Ephesus

On his voyage from Greece to Syria, Paul touched at this port, and delivered a noble address to the elders (“presbyters,” verse 28) of Ephesus recorded in Acts 20:15-35.

The site of Miletus is now some 10 miles from the coast.
