Jupiter
        the principal deity of the ancient Greeks and Romans. He was
        worshipped by them under various epithets. Barnabas was
        identified with this god by the Lycaonians (Acts 14:12), because
        he was of stately and commanding presence, as they supposed
        Jupiter to be. There was a temple dedicated to this god outside
        the gates of Lystra (14:13).
