FILIPPI (Ancient city) KAVALA
Gangas, Gangites (Gangas, Gangites, Appian, B.C. iv. 106), a river of Macedonia, which takes its rise at and flows round Philippi; after its confluence with the Zygactes the united streams bore the name of the Angites (Anghista), which was so called from the branch at Philippi. (Leake, Northern Greece, vol. iii. p. 225.) It was by this river side (Acts, xvi. 13), the fountains of which gave the name to the city, before the time of Philip of Macedon -Crenides, the Place of Fountains,- that the Proseucha was situated (in consequence of the ablutions which were connected with the worship) in which the Gospel was first preached within the limits of Europe. (Comp. Coneybeare and Howson, Life and Epistles of St. Paul, vol. i. p. 316.)
