Apostle Epaphroditus of the Seventy

St Epaphroditus was Bishop of Andriace (Myra, Lycia), and is mentioned by St Paul (Phil. 2:25, 4:18). He is probably the same person as Epaphras (Col. 1:7, 4:12, Phm. 23). St Epaphroditus is also commemorated on December 8 together with Sts Sosthenes, Apollos, Cephas, Onesiphorus, Tychicus, Caesar, and Onesiphorus.
