 for Berea
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     a city of Macedonia to which Paul with Silas and Timotheus went
     when persecuted at Thessalonica (Acts 17:10, 13), and from which
     also he was compelled to withdraw, when he fled to the sea-coast
     and thence sailed to Athens (14, 15). Sopater, one of Paul's
     companions belonged to this city, and his conversion probably
     took place at this time (Acts 20:4). It is now called Verria.
