probably of foreign derivation; Dalmatia, a region of
Europe:-Dalmatia.

Dalmatia [EBD]

a mountainous country on the eastern shore of the Adriatic, a part of the Roman province of Illyricum. It still bears its ancient name. During Paul's second imprisonment at Rome, Titus left him to visit Dalmatia (2 Tim. 4:10) for some unknown purpose. Paul had himself formerly preached in that region (Rom. 15:19).

The present Emperor of Austria bears, among his other titles, that of "King of Dalmatia."

Dalmatia [NAVE]

DALMATIA, a country on the eastern shore of the Adriatic, 2 Tim. 4:10.

DALMATIA [SMITH]

a mountainous district on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. St. Paul sent Titus there. (2 Timothy 4:10)

DALMATIA [ISBE]

DALMATIA - dal-ma'-shi-a (Dalmatia, "deceitful"): A district of the Roman empire lying on the eastern shore of the Adriatic. Writing from Rome to Timothy during his second imprisonment (in 66 or 67 AD, according to Ramsay's chronology), Paul records the departure of Titus to Dalmatia (2 Tim 4:10). No mention is made of his special mission, and we cannot tell whether his object was to traverse regions hitherto unevangelized or to visit churches already formed. Nor can we determine with certainty the meaning of the word Dalmatia as here used. Originally it denoted the land of the barbarous Dalmatae or Delmatae, a warlike Illyrian tribe subjugated by the Romans after a long and stubborn resistance; it was then applied to the southern portion of the Roman province of Illyricum, lying between the river Titius (modern Kerka) and the Macedonian frontier; later the name was extended to the entire province. On the whole it seems most probable that the apostle uses it in this last sense.
