As compared with Λούκιος in Acts 13:1, Romans 16:21, we find the transliteration Λεύκιος in P Tebt I. 33.3 (B.C. 112) (= Selections, p. 30) in connexion with the preparations for the visit of a Roman Senator—Λεύκιος Μέμμιος Ῥωμαῖος τῶν ἀπὸ (cf. Acts 12:1) συνκλήτου. Nachmanson (p. 61) gives various exx. of Λεύκιος from Magnesian inscrr., and thinks that the spelling may have been affected by a genuine Greek name exx. of Λεύκιος (from λευκός) : cf. Moulton Gr. ii. p. 88, and for other exx. see Michel 394.2 (mid. i/B.C.), 668.21 (i/B.C.), al.
