(Graecized Κούσπιος Φάδος , Josephus, Ant. 15:11, 4), a Roman knight of the time of the emperor Claudius. After the death of king Agrippa, in A.D. 44, he was appointed by Claudius procurator of Judaea. During his administration peace was restored in the country, and the only disturbance was created by one Theudas (q.v.), who came forward with the claim of being a prophet. He and his followers were put to death by command of Fadus. He was succeeded in the administration of Judaea (A.D. cir. 46) by Tiberius Alexander (Josephus, Ant. 19:9; 20:5, 1; War, 2:11, 5; Tacitus, Hist. 5:9; Zonaras, 12:11; Eusebius, Hist. Ecclesiastes 2:11). Smith, Dict. of Class. Biog. s.v. (See PROCURATOR).
