Cephas (Ga 2:11) was sometimes distinguished from Peter by early Christian writers, and said to be one of the seventy disciples by Clement of Alexandria (Hypoypposes, ) as recorded by Eusebius (H. E. 1, 12). In the list of the seventy ascribed to Dorotheus, lie is specified as bishop of Cannia. In the menology of Basil he is commemorated on Dec. 9, but nothing is said of him in the Synaxarion there given. The Armenian calendar commemorates Apollos and Cephas as disciples of Paul, Sept. 25. Dr. Lightfoot ( Galatians, p. 128.) refers to the constitutions of the Egyptian Church as representing him as one of the twelve distinct from Peter.
