For this proper name (Romans 16:12) Rouffiac (Recherckes, p. 90) cites exx. not only from Rome (IG II. 768), but from Thespis (IG VII. 2074), and from Egypt (BGU III. 895.29 (ii/A.D.), as amended p. 8). No conclusive argument can therefore be drawn from it any more than from the other proper names in Romans 16:1-27 as to the locale of the Church to which they belonged : cf. Lightfoot Philippians 2:1-30 p. 171 ff., Lietzmann HZNT ad Romans 16:1-27, and Milligan, p. 182 ff.
