Easton's Bible Dictionary

Sergius Paulus:

a "prudent man" (R.V., "man of understanding"), the deputy (R.V., "proconsul") of Cyprus (Act 13:6-13). He became a convert to Christianity under Paul, who visited this island on his first mission to the heathen.

A remarkable memorial of this proconsul was recently (1887) discovered at Rome. On a boundary stone of Claudius his name is found, among others, as having been appointed (A.D. 47) one of the curators of the banks and the channel of the river Tiber. After serving his three years as proconsul at Cyprus, he returned to Rome, where he held the office referred to. As he is not saluted in Paul's letter to the Romans, he probably died before it was written.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Sergius Paulus:

was the proconsul of Cyprus when the apostle Paul visited that island with Barnabas on his first missionary tour (Acts 13:7) seq., (A.D. 44) He is described as an intelligent man, truth‐seeking, eager for information from all sources within his reach. Though at first admitting to his society Elymas the magician, he afterward, on becoming acquainted with the claims of the gospel, yielded his mind to the evidence of its truth.
