- Ezekiel 30:5 (Heb. Lud), a province in the west of Asia Minor, which derived its name from the fourth son of Shem (Genesis 10:22). It was bounded on the east by the greater Phrygia, and on the west by Ionia and the AEgean Sea.
- A woman of Thyatira, a "seller of purple," who dwelt in Philippi (Acts 16:14,15). She was not a Jewess but a proselyte. The Lord opened her heart as she heard the gospel from the lips of Paul (Acts 16:13). She thus became the first in Europe who embraced Christianity. She was a person apparently of considerable wealth, for she could afford to give a home to Paul and his companions. (See THYATIRA.)
