  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  a  small  town  on  the  eastern  part  of  the  upland  plain  of 
  Lycaonia,  about  20  miles  from  Lystra.  Paul  passed  through  Derbe 
  on  his  route  from  Cilicia  to  Iconium,  on  his  second  missionary 
  journey  (Acts  16:1),  and  probably  also  on  his  third  journey 
  (18:23;  19:1).  On  his  first  journey  (14:20,  21)  he  came  to  Derbe 
  from  the  other  side  i.e.,  from  Iconium.  It  was  the  native  place 
  of  Gaius,  one  of  Paul's  companions  (20:4).  He  did  not  here 
  suffer  persecution  (2  Tim.  3:11). 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
