Troph´imus, a disciple of Ephesus, who accompanied St. Paul into Judea, and was the innocent cause of the dangers which the apostle there encountered; for having been recognized by some Jews of Asia Minor, and seen in company with Paul, they took occasion to accuse Paul of having brought Greeks into the temple (; ). His name does not again occur till after, seemingly, the first imprisonment of Paul. In one of the ensuing journeys he remained behind at Miletus sick (). This circumstance is regarded as furnishing a strong fact to show that Paul was twice imprisoned at Rome; for Trophimus, in the first passage to Miletus (), was not left behind, but proceeded to Judea; after which we do not lose sight of Paul for one day, and know that he was not again at Miletus before his first imprisonment at Rome.
