Smith's Bible Dictionary

(governor of the people), most probably a contraction from Demetrius or perhaps from Demarchus, a companion of St. Paul, (Philemon 1:24; Colossians 4:14) during his first imprisonment at Rome. (A.D. 57.) At a later period, (2 Timothy 4:10) we find him mentioned as having deserted the apostle through love of this present world, and gone to Thessalonica.

ATS Bible Dictionary

A fellow-laborer with Paul at Thessalonica, who afterwards deserted him, either discouraged by the hardships of the work, or allured by the love of the world, Colossians 4:14 2 Timothy 4:10 Philemon 1:24.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
A companion and fellow-labourer of Paul during his first imprisonment at Rome (Philemon 1:24; Colossians 4:14). It appears, however, that the love of the world afterwards mastered him, and he deserted the apostle (2 Timothy 4:10).
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

de'-mas (Demas, "popular"): According to Colossians 4:14 2 Timothy 4:10; Philemon 1:24, one who was for a time a "fellow-worker" with Paul at Rome (Col, Philem), but at last, "having loved this present world," forsook the apostle and betook himself to Thessalonica (2 Tim). No other particulars are given concerning him. See APOSTASY; DEMETRIUS.
