Roman road in Cilicia

The Roman road in Cilicia is located in Mersin city of modern Turkey. We believe Roman Province of Cappadocia was connected to the Roman Province of Cilicia with this road.

It is very likely that the Roman road in Cilicia was built in the first century which makes it possible for Apostle Paul to use this road during his journeys into the Roman Province of Galatia and Roman Province of Cappadocia.
