Acts 21:39

39Paul replied, aI am a Jew, from Tarsus in Cilicia, a citizen of no obscure city. I beg you, permit me to speak to the people.”

Acts 22:25-28

25But when they had stretched him out for the whips,
Or  when they had tied him up with leather strips
Paul said to the centurion who was standing by, “Is it lawful for you to flog ca man who is a Roman citizen and uncondemned?”
26When the centurion heard this, he went to the tribune and said to him, “What are you about to do? For this man is a Roman citizen.” 27So the tribune came and said to him, “Tell me, are you a Roman citizen?” And he said, “Yes.” 28The tribune answered, “I bought this citizenship for a large sum.” Paul said, “But I am a citizen by birth.”
