Gallio, Julius Annjeus (1st century), was born at Cordova, and was the brother of Seneca the philosopher. He came to Rome, and was adopted by Gallio, whose name he took. During the reign of Claudius he became proconsul of Achaia, and is said to have been afterwards one of Nero's latest victims.

“Are you dejected? here is comfort. Are you sinful? here is righteousness. Are you led away with present enjoyments? here you have honours, and pleasures, and all in Christ Jesus. You have a right to common pleasures that others have, and besides them you have interest in others that are everlasting, that shall never fail; so that there is nothing that is dejecting and abasing in man, but there is comfort for it in Christ Jesus.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
