This is quite common - it is plural 61 times in the GNT, and also in
extra-biblical literature. BAGD and Louw&Nida mention this, but neither
mentions any particular significance.
While we're waiting for a real answer....
I wonder if this has a meaning something like "Jerusalem and the area right
around it". I also wonder if hOI OURANOI has a similar meaning. No evidence
or knowledge behind this, just a conjecture.
