Tim Gombis has continued his series of posts on Onesimus’ identity in the Epistle to Philemon, see his recent entries: Philemon and Onesimus: The ConsensusQuestioning the Consensus, Part 1, and Questioning the Consensus, Part 2.

John Byron is an expert on slavery in the Roman Empire and he mentioned that in private conversation he has expressed disagreement with Gombis’ thesis (see What was life like for Roman slaves?). Let’s see if a discussion emerges on this topic between these two on their blogs. It would be beneficial to all if it did!
