Strong's #G4539

There are at least two different women named Salome referenced in the New Testament. The first Salome was likely the mother of the apostles John and James the Greater (the sons of Zebedee).

The second Salome is not named directly in Scripture. She is, however, named and referenced several times by the first century historian Josephus (Antiquities of the Jews, Book 18, Chapter 5, Section 4). This Salome was Herodias' daughter through Herod Philip I. Herodias, an unknown number of years after Salome was born, divorced Herod Philip and married Herod Antipas despite it being condemned by John the Baptist (Mark 6:17 - 18).
