hermogenes in Easton's Bible Dictionary

Mercury-born, at one time Paul's fellow-labourer in Asia Minor, who, however, afterwards abandoned him, along with one Phygellus, probably on account of the perils by which they were beset (2 Tim. 1:15).

hermogenes in Smith's Bible Dictionary

a person mentioned by St. Paul in the latest of all his epistles, #2Ti 1:15| when all in Asia had turned away from him. (A.D. 64.)

HERMOG'ENES (begotten of Mercury), one who forsook Paul. 2 Tim 1:15.

hermogenes in Fausset's Bible Dictionary

2 Timothy 1:15; "all they which are (now) in Asia (when they were in Rome, or else in Nicopolis where they had escorted him, and where he was apprehended on his way to Rome) turned away from me," "ashamed of my chain," unlike Onesiphorus, not standing by me but forsaking me; 2 Timothy 1:16. "of whom are Hermogenes and Phygellus," specified as persons from whom such unchristian cowardice was not to be expected; often probably spoken of in conversations between Paul and Timothy when together in Asia.
