Who is Gaius?

The letter is written to a man named Gaius.  Gaius seems to have been a wealthy man, since the epistle’s author did not think it would impose unduly on him to host some traveling preachers for a short time.  This elder author may have converted Gaius, since he calls Gaius “his child in the faith.”  There was a later tradition that Gaius was made bishop of Pergamon in Greece, although there is no early support for this statement.  Do you now a wealthy Christian?
