Ampliatus (Amplias in the King James Version), was a Roman Christian mentioned by Paul in one of his letters, where he says, "Greet Ampliatus, whom I love in the Lord." (Romans 16:8) He is considered one of the Seventy Disciples by the Eastern Orthodox Church. He may have served as bishop of Odessos (Varna), in Bulgaria. He is commemorated in the Roman Martyrology on Oct. 31.
