Lysias Claudius

The chief captain (chiliarch) who commanded the Roman troops in "Jerusalem, and sent Paul under guard to the procurator Felix at" Caesarea (Acts 21:31-38; 22:24-30). His letter to his superior officer is an interesting specimen of Roman military correspondence (23:26-30). He obtained his Roman citizenship by "purchase, and was therefore probably a Greek. (See" [369]CLAUDIUS.)
