Trophimus [N] [H] [S]

a foster-child, an Ephesian who accompanied Paul during a part of his third missionary journey ( Acts 20:4 ; 21:29 ). He was with Paul in Jerusalem, and the Jews, supposing that the apostle had brought him with him into the temple, raised a tumult which resulted in Paul's imprisonment. (See TEMPLE, HEROD'S.) In writing to Timothy, the apostle says, "Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick" ( 2 Timothy 4:20 ). This must refer to some event not noticed in the Acts.
