Epaphrodi´tus a messenger of the church at Philippi to the Apostle Paul during his imprisonment at Rome, who was entrusted with their contributions for his support (; ). Paul's high estimate of his character is shown by an accumulation of honorable epithets, and by fervent expressions of gratitude for his recovery from a dangerous illness brought on in part by a generous disregard of his personal welfare in ministering to the Apostle (). Epaphroditus, on his return to Philippi, was the bearer of the epistle which forms part of the canon.
