A member of the court of the Areopagus at Athens, converted under the preaching of Paul, Acts 17:34 . Tradition says that he was eminent for learning, that he was ordained by Paul at Athens, and after many labors and trials, suffered martyrdom by fire. The works ascribed to him are spurious, being the product of some unknown writer in the fourth or fifth century.
