ERASTUS . The name occurs thrice in NT among the Pauline company. An Erastus sends greetings in Romans 16:23 , and is called ‘the treasurer (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘chamberlain’) of the city’ (Corinth). The Erastus who was sent by St. Paul from Ephesus to Macedonia ( Acts 19:22 ), and who later remained in Corinth ( 2 Timothy 4:20 ), is perhaps the same.
