pat´rṓ - bas ( Πατρόβας , Patróbas ): The name of a member of the Christian community at Rome to whom Paul sent greetings ( Romans 16:14 ). The name is an abbreviated form of "Patrobius." There was a wealthy freedman of Nero of the same name who was put to death by Galba (Tacitus, History i. 49; ii. 95). The Patrobas of Paul may have been a dependent of his.
