See Deissmann’s St. Paul, App. I., where, following Ramsay (Exp. VII. vii. p. 467 ff.), it is shown on the evidence of a Delphic inscription, published by Bourguet De rebus Delphicis, 1905, p. 63 f., that Gallio entered on his pro-consulship in the summer of A.D. 51, and a fixed point is thus secured for determining the chronology of Paul’s life. The name occurs P Ryl II. 155.12 (A.D. 138–61).
