Quartus

QUARTUS (kwôr'tŭs, Gr. Kouartos). A Christian man of Corinth whose greetings Paul sent to the church at Rome together with those of Gaius and Erastus (Rom.16.23). No doubt he was a friend and assistant of Paul and a worker in the Corinthian church. There is an old tradition that he was originally one of the seventy disciples or missionaries Jesus sent out in Palestine (Luke.10.1).
