Nereus in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
ne'-rus, ne'-re-us (Nereus): The name of a Roman Christian to
whom with his sister Paul sent greetings (Rom 16:15). Nereus
and the others saluted with him (Rom 16:15) formed small
community or "house church." The name of the sister is not
given, but the name Nereis is found on an inscription of this
date containing names of the emperor's servants (Lightfoot,
Phil, 176). Among the Acta Sanctorum connected with the early
church in Rome are the "Acts of Nereus and Achilleus" which
call them chamberlains of Domitilla, the niece of Vespasian,
and relate their influence over her in persuading her to
remain a virgin.
