  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Clement 
  mild,  a  Christian  of  Philippi,  Paul's  "fellow-labourer,"  whose 
  name  he  mentions  as  "in  the  book  of  life"  (Phil.  4:3).  It  was  an 
  opinion  of  ancient  writers  that  he  was  the  Clement  of  Rome  whose 
  name  is  well  known  in  church  history,  and  that  he  was  the  author 
  of  an  Epistle  to  the  Corinthians,  the  only  known  manuscript  of 
  which  is  appended  to  the  Alexandrian  Codex,  now  in  the  British 
  Museum.  It  is  of  some  historical  interest,  and  has  given  rise  to 
  much  discussion  among  critics.  It  makes  distinct  reference  to 
  Paul's  First  Epistle  to  the  Corinthians. 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
