Herodion

HERODION (hĕ-rō'dĭ-ŏn, Gr. Hērōdiōn). A Christian at Rome, kinsman of Paul and recipient of his greeting (Rom.16.11).


HERODION hĭ rō’ dĭ ən (̔Ηρῳδίων, G2479). A Christian at Rome to whom Paul sent greetings (Rom. 16:11). Paul calls him “my kinsman,” either as a blood-relative or simply a fellow Jew. The name suggests that he may have been a freedman of the Herods, or possibly a member of the household of Aristobulus (v. 10).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

A Roman Christian to whom Paul sent greetings (Ro 16:11). The name seems to imply that he was a freedman of the Herods, or a member of the household of Aristobulus, the grandson of Herod the Great (Ro 16:10). Paul calls him "my kinsman," i.e. "a Jew" (see Junias, 1).
