SYMEON sĭm’ ī ən (Συμεών, G5208), KJV SIMEON. 1. One of the prophets and teachers in the church at Antioch who set apart Paul and Barnabas for missionary work (Acts 13:1, 2). His surname Niger, “black,” suggests an African origin. If he was from Cyrene like Lucius (Acts 13:1), conceivably he may be the Simon who carried Jesus’ cross (Mark 15:21).

2. Jewish name for Simon Peter (q.v.) as used by James in Acts 15:14.
