tī´mon (Τίμων, Tímōn, "honouring"):

One of “the seven” deacons at Jerusalem chosen to relieve the apostles by attending to “the daily ministration” to the poor of the Christian community in Jerusalem (Acts 6:5). The name is Greek, but as Nicolaus is distinguished from the remaining six as a proselyte, Timon and the others were probably Jews by birth. Nothing further is known of him.
