Bible Names N-Z: Tertius
Tertius in Easton's Bible Dictionary
the third, a Roman Christian whom Paul employed as his
amanuensis in writing his epistle to the Romans
Tertius in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
Paul's amanuensis in writing the epistle to the Romans (Romans
16:22) from Corinth. His greeting inserted in the middle of
Paul's greetings to the Romans shows that he was well
acquainted with the Roman Christians, "I Tertius, who wrote
this epistle, salute you in the Lord"; his name too makes it
likely he was a Roman.

Tertius in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
tur'-shi-us (Tertios): The amanuensis of Paul who wrote at his
dictation the Epistle to the Romans. In the midst of Paul's
greetings to the Christians in Rome he interpolated his own,
"I Tertius, who write the epistle, salute you in the Lord"
(Rom 16:22). "It is as a Christian, not in virtue of any other
relation he has to the Romans, that Tertius salutes them"
(Denney). Some identify him with Silas, owing to the fact that
shalish is the Hebrew for "third (officer)," as tertius is the
Latin Others think he was a Roman Christian residing in
Corinth. This is, however, merely conjecture. Paul seems to
have dictated his letters to an amanuensis, adding by his own
hand merely the concluding sentences as "the token in every
epistle" (2 Thess 3:17; Col 4:18; 1 Cor 16:21). How far this
may have influenced the style of his letters is discussed in
Sanday-Headlam, Romans, Introduction, LX.
