  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Berea 
  a  city  of  Macedonia  to  which  Paul  with  Silas  and  Timotheus  went 
  when  persecuted  at  Thessalonica  (Acts  17:10,  13),  and  from  which 
  also  he  was  compelled  to  withdraw,  when  he  fled  to  the  sea-coast 
  and  thence  sailed  to  Athens  (14,  15).  Sopater,  one  of  Paul's 
  companions  belonged  to  this  city,  and  his  conversion  probably 
  took  place  at  this  time  (Acts  20:4).  It  is  now  called  Verria
