Beloved.
  • The "chamberlain" of the city of Corinth (Romans 16:23 ), and one of Paul's disciples. As treasurer of such a city he was a public officer of great dignity, and his conversion to the gospel was accordingly a proof of the wonderful success of the apostle's labours.

  • A companion of Paul at Ephesus, who was sent by him along with Timothy into Macedonia (Acts 19:22 ). Corinth was his usual place of abode (2 Timothy 4:20 ); but probably he may have been the same as the preceding.
