Colosse, or Colossæ (ko-lŏs-sç). A city of Phrygia, on the Lycus, a branch of the Mæander, and twelve miles above Laodicea. Paul wrote to the church there, Colossians 1:2, and possibly visited it on his third missionary journey. See Acts 18:23; Acts 19:10. The town is now in ruins; there is a little village called Chronos three miles south of the site of Colosse.
