Apostle Tertius of the Seventy

The holy Apostle Tertius, a native of Achaia, was a disciple of Saint Paul, and wrote what Saint Paul dictated in the Epistle to the Romans: “I, Tertius, who wrote this epistle, salute you in the Lord” (Rom 16:22). He was the second Bishop of Iconium, where also he died.

Saint Tertius is also commemorated on October 30, and again on November 10 with Saints Erastus, Olympas, Rodion, Sosipater, and Quartus. They lived during the first century.
