Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
TYCHICUS . A native of the province Asia, like Trophimus, and a companion of St. Paul on the journey to Jerusalem ( Acts 20:4 ). He was the bearer of the circular letter to Asia which we call ‘Ephesians’ ( Ephesians 6:21 f.), and of Colossians ( Colossians 4:7 f.). In later years either he or Artemas was to have been sent to Crete, apparently to take Titus’ place ( Titus 3:12 ); but he was sent to Ephesus, probably instead of to Crete ( 2 Timothy 4:12 ).
