From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Aquila
    eagle, a native of Pontus, by occupation a tent-maker, whom Paul
    met on his first visit to Corinth (Acts 18:2). Along with his
    wife Priscilla he had fled from Rome in consequence of a decree
    (A.D. 50) by Claudius commanding all Jews to leave the city.
    Paul sojourned with him at Corinth, and they wrought together at
    their common trade, making Cilician hair-cloth for tents. On
    Paul's departure from Corinth after eighteen months, Aquila and
    his wife accompanied him to Ephesus, where they remained, while
    he proceeded to Syria (Acts 18:18, 26). When they became
    Christians we are not informed, but in Ephesus they were (1 Cor.
    16:19) Paul's "helpers in Christ Jesus." We find them afterwards
    at Rome (Rom. 16:3), interesting themselves still in the cause
    of Christ. They are referred to some years after this as being
    at Ephesus (2 Tim. 4:19). This is the last notice we have of
    them.
