LUCIUS. 1 . A ‘consul of the Romans’ ( 1Ma 15:16 ff.), who transmitted the decree of the senate in favour of the Jews. Probably the reference is to Lucius Calpurnius Piso, consul in b.c. 139. 2 . Of Cyrene, one of certain prophets and teachers at Antioch in Syria, mentioned in Acts 13:1 , to whom it was revealed that Paul and Barnabas should be separated for the work to which they had been called. The suggestion that he was the same person as St. Luke , the Evangelist, has nothing to support it. 3 . Mentioned in Romans 16:21 , as sending greetings to the brethren at Rome. Possibly the same person as 2 , but of this there is no certain proof.
