Tych´icus is the name of an assistant and companion of the Apostle Paul. He accompanied Paul on his third missionary journey (), and was, at a later period, the bearer of Paul's letter from Rome to the Colossians. Paul styled him a beloved brother, faithful minister, and fellow-servant in the Lord, who should declare all his state unto the Colossians, to whom he was sent that he might know their estate and comfort their hearts (). For a similar purpose Tychicus was sent to the Ephesians also (; ), and employed in various missionary journeys (). According to tradition, Tychicus was made bishop of Chalcedon.
