At the end of his Epistle to the Colossians Paul encourages his readers to obtain and read the Epistle from Laodicea. In the course of history it has been suggested that this letter from Laodicea could be identified as inter alia: the extant Latin letter to the Laodiceans, a letter from Paul to the Laodiceans which was lost, a letter from the Laodiceans to Paul, the Epistle to the Ephesians. In this article, however, these possibilities are rejected, and the option of relating "the Epistle from Laodicea" to the canonical letter to Philemon is proposed.
