Salome

Salome (Suh-loh´mee)

1 The daughter of Herodias. (Matt 14:3-11 and (Mark 6:17-28) tell the story of her dance before her uncle and now stepfather, Herod Antipas, and her request, at the instigation of her mother, for the head of John the Baptist. She is not named in the Gospels, but is identified in writings of the Jewish historian Josephus, who also tells us that Salome later married her uncle Herod Philip, the tetrarch. 2 According to (Mark 15:40) and Mark 16:1), one of the Galilean women at Jesus’s crucifixion and later at the empty tomb, perhaps the wife of Zebedee and thus the mother of James and John (Matt 27:56).
