Lu´cius of Cyrene, a person named along with Barnabas, Saul, and others, as 'prophets' and 'teachers' in the church at Antioch (). Lucius was probably one of 'the synagogue of the Cyrenians,' and was without doubt one of the men of Cyrene, who went abroad in consequence of the persecution raised on the death of Stephen (; ). Some suppose that he was one of the seventy disciples; and the tradition is, that he was eventually bishop of Cyrene. This is probably the same Lucius who is mentioned in as Paul's kinsman; and he has been supposed by some the same with Luke the Evangelist.
