Herodion

HERODION

he-ro'-di-on (Herodion; Westcott and Hort, The New Testament in Greek Hrodion):

A Roman Christian to whom Paul sent greetings (Romans 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 (Romans 16:10). Paul calls him "my kinsman," i.e. "a Jew" (see JUNIAS, 1).
