Asia Minor.--The region so named comprised the provinces between the Euxine and the Meditrranean seas; consequently it included Bithynia, Paphlagonia, Pontus, Galatia, Mysia (see Troas), Lydia, Caria, Aeolis, Ionia, Lycia, Pamphylia, Phrygia, Cappadocia, Cilicia, and Lycaonia.--"The country (observes the late Biship Butler in his admirable sketch of Ancient and Modern Geography) which we call Asia Minor (a term not in use among the ancients, who called it simply Asia) is now called Anatolia, or rather Anadoli, from anatolh, the East."
