Epaenetus: Commendable, a Christian at Rome to whom Paul sent his salutation
(Romans 16:5) He is spoken of as "the first fruits of Achaia" (R.V., "of
Asia", i.e., of proconsular Asia, which is probably the correct
reading). As being the first convert in that region, he was
peculiarly dear to the apostle. He calls him his "well beloved."
