  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Apollos 
  a  Jew  "born  at  Alexandria,"  a  man  well  versed  in  the  Scriptures 
  and  eloquent  (Acts  18:24;  R.V.,  "learned").  He  came  to  Ephesus 
  (about  A.D.  49),  where  he  spake  boldly"  in  the  synagogue 
  (18:26),  although  he  did  not  know  as  yet  that  Jesus  of  Nazareth 
  was  the  Messiah.  Aquila  and  Priscilla  instructed  him  more 
  perfectly  in  "the  way  of  God",  i.e.,  in  the  knowledge  of  Christ. 
  He  then  proceeded  to  Corinth,  where  he  met  Paul  (Acts  18:27; 
  19:1).  He  was  there  very  useful  in  watering  the  good  seed  Paul 
  had  sown  (1  Cor.  1:12),  and  in  gaining  many  to  Christ.  His 
  disciples  were  much  attached  to  him  (1  Cor.  3:4-7,  22).  He  was 
  with  Paul  at  Ephesus  when  he  wrote  the  First  Epistle  to  the 
  Corinthians;  and  Paul  makes  kindly  reference  to  him  in  his 
  letter  to  Titus  (3:13).  Some  have  supposed,  although  without 
  sufficient  ground,  that  he  was  the  author  of  the  Epistle  to  the 
  Hebrews.
