Apologies --- my posting was truncated.

Under the domain "Space" we find:

"an area of activity, defined geographically and functionally - `area,
sphere, territory.' .........`and shall not have to boast of work already
done in another person's area' 2 Cor 10.16.

BAGD see the 2 Cor usage very much in the geographical , functional sense:
"sphere of action or influence, province, limits"

The "middle"L&S [ Perseus doesn't have an entry for LSJ ] is more ambigous:
b. 'province', sphere of action, 2 Ep.Cor.10.15.
