Syro-Phoenicia

Syro–Phoenicia, or Phoenicia Proper, called Syro or Syrian Phoenicia, from being included in the Roman province of Syria. It includes that part of the coast of Canaan, on the borders of the Mediterranean, in which the cities of Tyre and Sidon were situated; and the same country, which is called Syro-Phoenicia in the Acts, is in the Gospels called the coasts of Tyre and Sidon. The woman also described as Syro-Phoenician in , is in called a Canaanitish woman, because that country was still occupied by the descendants of Canaan, of whom Sidon was the eldest son.
