Lucius Sergius Paulus or Paullus was a Proconsul of Cyprus under Claudius. He appears in Acts 13:6-12, where in Paphos Paul, accompanied by Barnabas and John Mark, overcame the attempts of Bar-Jesus "to turn the proconsul away from the faith" and converted Sergius to Christianity. A boundary stone of Claudius mentioning Sergius was discovered at Rome in 1887, it records the appointment of the Curators of the banks and the channel of the river Tiber, one of whom was Sergius. Since Paul's journey to Cyprus is dated to the first half of the 40s, it is thought Sergius may have first served three years as Proconsul at Cyprus returned to Rome, where he was appointed curator; as he is not greeted in Paul's Epistle to the Romans, it is possible. Some medieval legends have anachronistically identified Sergius Paulus with Paul of Narbonne. Sergius Paulus may have been the first of several successive senators named Lucius Sergius Paullus, of Antioch, including one, consul suffectus around AD 70, another, twice consul, Lucius Sergius Paullus, the father of Sergia Paulla, who married Quintus Anicius Faustus, Legate of Numidia in 198, had Quintus Anicius Faustus Paulinus, governor of Moesia Inferior between 229 and 232.
