Aristarchus

Additional Links
(ehr ihss tahr' chuhss) Personal name perhaps meaning, “best ruler.” Paul's companion caught by the followers of Artemis in Ephesus (Acts 19:29 ). Apparently the same person was the Thessalonian who accompanied Paul from Greece to Jerusalem as he returned from his third missionary journey (Acts 20:4 ). Aristarchus also accompanied Paul when he sailed for Rome (Acts 27:2 ). Paul sent greetings from Aristarchus, a fellow prisoner and worker, in his letters to the Colossians (Acts 4:10 ) and Philemon (24). Later church tradition said Nero put Aristarchus to death in Rome.
