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.

The Sacred Tradition makes him the first Bishop of Varna, in Bulgaria.[1]

Holy Apostles of the Seventy: Stáchys, Amplías, Úrban,

to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Let us thankfully praise the wise Apostles
Stáchys, Amplías, Úrban, Narcíssus, Apélles, and Aristobúlus,
