LUCIUS OF CYRENE in Fausset's Bible Dictionary

Mentioned with Barnabas, Simeon Niger, Manaen, and Saul, among the prophets and teachers of the church at Antioch (Acts 13:1). He probably was one of the "men of Cyrene" who heard the tongues and then Peter's Pentecostal sermon (Acts 2:10), and of the "men of Cyrene" who when "scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen" went to Antioch, "preaching the Lord Jesus" (Acts 11:19-20). A distinct name from Luke, = Lucas, = Lucanus.
