4. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Libertine
   found only Acts 6:9, one who once had been a slave, but who had
   been set at liberty, or the child of such a person. In this case
   the name probably denotes those descendants of Jews who had been
   carried captives to Rome as prisoners of war by Pompey and other
   Roman generals in the Syrian wars, and had afterwards been
   liberated. In A.D. 19 these manumitted Jews were banished from
   Rome. Many of them found their way to Jerusalem, and there
   established a synagogue.
