—Greek Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)

 1) Syrtis, the name of two places in the African or Libyan Sea
    between Carthage and Cyrenaicia, full of shallows and sandbanks,
    and therefore destructive to ships; the western Syrtis, between
    the islands Cercina and Meninx (or the promontories of Zeitha and
    Brachodes), was called Syris minor, the eastern (extending from
    the promontories of Cephalae on the west to that of Boreum on the
    east) was called Syris major; this latter must be the one referred
    to in Acts 27:17, for upon this the ship in which Paul was sailing
    might easily be cast after leaving Crete

—Thayer's (New Testament Greek-English Lexicon)

From G4951; a shoal (from the sand drawn thither by the waves), that is, the Syrtis Major or great bay on the North coast of Africa:—quicksands.
