  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Troas 
  a  city  on  the  coast  of  Mysia,  in  the  north-west  of  Asia  Minor, 
  named  after  ancient  Troy,  which  was  at  some  little  distance  from 
  it  (about  4  miles)  to  the  north.  Here  Paul,  on  his  second 
  missionary  journey,  saw  the  vision  of  a  "man  of  Macedonia,"  who 
  appeared  to  him  saying,  "Come  over  and  help  us"  (Acts 
  16:8-11).  He  visited  this  place  also  on  other  occasions,  and  on 
  one  of  these  visits  he  left  his  cloak  and  some  books  there  (2 
  Cor.  2:12;  2  Tim.  4:13).  The  ruins  of  Troas  extend  over  many 
  miles,  the  site  being  now  mostly  covered  with  a  forest  of  oak 
  trees.  The  modern  name  of  the  ruins  is  Eski  Stamboul  i.e.,  Old 
  Constantinople.
