Sy'ro-phoeni'cian. Syrophoenician occurs only in Mark 7:26. The word denoted, perhap, s a mixed race, half Phoenicians and half Syrians; (or the Phoenicians in this region may have been called, Syro-phoenicians, because they belonged to the Roman province of Syria, and were, thus, distinguished from the Phoenicians, who lived in Africa, or the Carthaginians. - Editor).
