Note 007
From Chapter 59 of the Decline & Fall

Iconium is mentioned as a station by Xenophon, and by Strabo, with an ambiguous title of Ancient Greek (Cellarius, tom. ii. p. 121). Yet St. Paul found in that place a multitude Ancient Greek of Jews and Gentiles. Under the corrupt name of Kunijah, it is described as a great city, with a river and garden, three leagues from the mountains, and decorated (I know not why) with Plato's tomb (Abulfeda, tabul. xvii. p. 303 vers. Reiske; and the Index Geographicus of Schulrens from Ibn Said.).
