Aristar´chus, a faithful adherent of St. Paul, whose name repeatedly occurs in the Acts and Epistles (Acts 19:29; Acts 20:4; Acts 27:2; Colossians 4:10; Philemon 1:24). He was a native of Thessalonica, and became the companion of St. Paul, whom he accompanied to Ephesus, where he was seized and nearly killed in the tumult raised by the silversmiths. He left that city with the Apostle, and accompanied him in his subsequent journeys, even when taken as a prisoner to Rome: indeed, Aristarchus was himself sent thither as a prisoner, or became such while there, for Paul calls him his 'fellow-prisoner' (Colossians 4:10). The traditions of the Greek Church represent Aristarchus as bishop of Apamea in Phrygia.
