    Onkelos, possibly identical to Aquila of Sinope, was a Roman national who converted to Judaism in Tannaic times. He is considered to be the author of the famous Targum Onkelos. The Book of Psalms, commonly referred to simply as Psalms or "the Psalms", is the first book of the Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third section of the Hebrew Bible. Though the name Onkelos corresponds to Aquila, there is no reason to ascribe this Targum to the Aquila who made a literalistic Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures in the second century. 2.

The traces of the legend concerning Flavius Clemens, current alike among Jews and Christians, seem to have exerted some influence upon this Onkelos-Aquila tradition; but Lagarde goes so far as to explain Sinope in Pontus as being "Sinuessa in Pontia," where Dimitilla, the wife of Flavius Clemens, lived in.

Dying a slow death, a Roman eagle carved into his chest, he cried out to the gods for vengeance - and Ammit the Devourer answered, offering him invulnerability in return for delivering to her the souls of evil men, for which Aquila hunts the breadth of the Empire.

The best known of these is the so-called Targum of Onkelos, which was one of the earliest targums to be written down. Like most of the targums it had its origin in Pal. However, it was carried to Babylonia where there were great centers of Jewish learning in the 2nd and 3rd centuries a.d.
