From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    honourable, was with Paul and Barnabas at Antioch, and
    accompanied them to the council at Jerusalem (Gal. 2:1-3; Acts
    15:2), although his name nowhere occurs in the Acts of the
    Apostles. He appears to have been a Gentile, and to have been
    chiefly engaged in ministering to Gentiles; for Paul sternly
    refused to have him circumcised, inasmuch as in his case the
    cause of gospel liberty was at stake. We find him, at a later
    period, with Paul and Timothy at Ephesus, whence he was sent by
    Paul to Corinth for the purpose of getting the contributions of
    the church there in behalf of the poor saints at Jerusalem sent
    forward (2 Cor. 8:6; 12:18). He rejoined the apostle when he was
    in Macedonia, and cheered him with the tidings he brought from
    Corinth (7:6-15). After this his name is not mentioned till
    after Paul's first imprisonment, when we find him engaged in the
    organization of the church in Crete, where the apostle had left
    him for this purpose (Titus 1:5). The last notice of him is in 2
    Tim. 4:10, where we find him with Paul at Rome during his second
    imprisonment. From Rome he was sent into Dalmatia, no doubt on
    some important missionary errand. We have no record of his
    death. He is not mentioned in the Acts.
