After three months we put out to sea in a ship that had wintered in the island. It was an Alexandrian ship1 with the figurehead of the twin gods Castor and Pollux.
We put in at Syracuse and stayed there three days.
From there we set sail and arrived at Rhegium. The next day the south wind came up, and on the following day we reached Puteoli.
There we found some brothers2 who invited us to spend a week with them. And so we came to Rome.
The brothers3 there had heard that we were coming, and they traveled as far as the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns to meet us. At the sight of these men Paul thanked God and was encouraged.
