It has been much disputed whether Paul endured two Roman imprisonments, from A.D. 62 to 68 or one. The tradition from Clement to Eusebius favours two imprisonments with a year of liberty between.

Erdman (W.J.) has pointed out the leaving of Trophimus sick at Miletus, mentioned in (Ti2 4:20) could not have been an occurrence of Paul's last journey to Jerusalem, for then Trophimus was not left; (Act 20:4); (Act 21:29) nor of the journey to Rome to appear before Caesar, for then he did not touch at Miletus.

To make this incident possible, there must have been a release from the first imprisonment, and an interval of ministry and travel.
