o-lim'-pas (Olumpas):

The name of a Roman Christian to whom Paul sent greetings (Romans 16:15). Olympas is an abbreviated form of Olympiadorus. The joining in one salutation of the Christians mentioned in 16:15 suggests that they formed by themselves a small community in the earliest Roman church.
