As showing the widespread occurrence of this name in its longer form Ἀμπλιᾶτος, and the impossibility therefore of connecting it specially with the Imperial household at Rome (cf. Lightfoot, Philippians, p. 172), Rouffiac Recherches sur les caractères du Grec dans le NT p. 90 gives the following instances of its use—at Rome, CIL VI. 14918, 15509, but also at Pompeii CIL IV. 1182, 1183, and ib. Suppl. I. Index, p. 747; in Spain CIL II. 3771; at Athens IG III. 11618, 1892; and at Ephesus CIL III. 436. See further Milligan Documents, p. 183.
