Consul (ὕπατος, i.e. highest in office), a title applied (1 Maccabees 15:16) to Lucius (q.v.), the Roman officer, whose communication to Ptolemy is there cited. The Sept. elsewhere uses the same Greek term as a rendering of the Chald. אֲחִשׁדִּרפּנַין, satraps ("princes," Da 3:2-3), and הִד ברַין, viziers ("counsellors, Da 6:7, etc.). It is often used by classical Greek writers for the Roman consul. SEE ROME.
