Asyncritus - bishop of Hyrcania

We just learned about the Rufus - bishop of Thebes, one of the seventy disciples

Another of the seventy was Asyncritus - bishop of Hyrcania.

Just like Rufus, Asyncritus was one of the people that Paul talked about when he wrote a letter to the people of Rome.

Asyncritus went on to the land of Hyrcania, which later became part of the country of Iran.
