(Ὀλυμπᾶς, a Greek name, contracted from Olympiodorus)

Olympas is the fifth of a group of five persons, ‘and all the saints that are with them,’ saluted by St. Paul in Romans 16:15, probably as forming an ἐκκλησία or household or district church in Rome or Ephesus. If the first two persons in the group, Philologus and Julia (which see ), were husband and wife, it is possible that ‘Nereus and his sister and Olympas’ were their family. But there is nothing further known of any one of them.
