LASAEA (Λασαία), a city in Crete, near the roadstead of the “Fair Havens.” (Acts, 27.8.) This place is not mentioned by any other writer, but is probably the same as the Lisia of the Peutinger Tables, 16 M. P. to the E. of Gortyna. (Comp. Höck, Kreta, vol. i. pp. 412, 439.) Some MSS. have Lasea; others, Alassa. The Vulgate reads Thalassa, which Beza contended was the true name. (Comp. Coneybeare and Howson, Life and Epist. of St. Paul, vol. ii. p. 330.)
