Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";Pudens,"; a Roman Christian (2 Timothy 4:21). In BGU II. 455.4 (i/A.D.) we find the gen. Πούδεντος : cf. P Oxy XIV. 1626.2 (A.D. 325), and JHS xlvi. (1926), p. 46. For the untrustworthy legends which have grown up round the names of Pudens and Claudia, see s.v. Κλαυδία, and add Edmundson The Church in Rome, p. 244 ff.
