Ethiopian eunuch


"The chief officer or prime minister of state of Candace (q.v.)," queen of Ethiopia. He was converted to Christianity through the instrumentality of Philip (Act 8:27). The northern portion of "Ethiopia formed the kingdom of Meroe, which for a long period" "was ruled over by queens, and it was probably from this kingdom" that the eunuch came.
