APELLES

a-pel'-ez (Apelles):

A Christian at Rome to whom Paul sends greetings (Romans 16:10). He is described by Paul as "the, approved in Christ," i.e. "that approved Christian" (Denney). In some way unknown to us Apelles had been tested and he had proved faithful (compare James 1:12; 2 Timothy 2:15). It is a common name. Many commentators refer to Horace (Satires, i.5.100): "Credat Judaeus Apella, non ego."
