Car´Pus (Κάρπος, perhaps for καρπός, fruit; on the accentuation, see Winer's Grammar, 6th ed. p. 49), a Christian at Troas, with whom the apostle Paul states that he left a cloak (2Ti 4:13); on which of his journeys it is uncertain, but probably in passing through Asia Minor after his first captivity, for the last time before his martyrdom at Rome, A.D. 64. According to Hippolytus, Carpus was bishop of Berytus, in Thrace, called Berrhoea in the Synopsis de Vita et Morte Prophetarum, which passes under the name of Dorotheus of Tyre.
