Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The designation Σαῦλος ὁ καὶ Παῦλος of Acts 13:9 is fully discussed by Deissmann BS, p. 313 ff., where it is shown that the Apostle was already in possession of the double name at the time referred to : cf. Ramsay Paul, p. 81 ff. Elsewhere (Recent Discovery, p. 356) Ramsay suggests that Paul’s complete Roman name may have been ";C. Julius Paullus,"; in view of the frequent conjunction of the names Julius Paullus in Lycaonia.

In the important letter on the Meletian Schism, P Lond 191459 (A.D. 335?), greetings are conveyed to Παῦλον τὸν ἀναγνώστην : the editor refers to a priest of the same name (ἀπὸ Τηέν <ε >ως) in ib. 191711 (c. A.D. 330–340), and to ὁ μακάριος Παῦλος in ib. 191925 (same date). The name is not uncommon in the inscrr., see e.g. Perg 374 A16 (time of Augustus), where . Καστρίκιος Παῦλος is included among the choristers of θεὸς Σεβαστὸς καὶ θεὰ Ῥώμη in Pergamum : cf. Thieme, p. 40. In Menander Frag. Gr. Hist. iv. 245 there is mention of Παῦλος ὁ Κίλιξ.
