Epaenetus

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Epaenetus : commendable, a Christian at Rome to whom Paul sent his salutation (Romans 16:5). He is spoken of as "the first fruits of Achaia" (R.V., "of Asia", i.e., of proconsular Asia, which is probably the correct reading). As being the first convert in that region, he was peculiarly dear to the apostle. He calls him his "well beloved."
