DAMARIS . A convert at Athens ( Acts 17:34 ). As women of the upper classes were kept more in the background there than in Macedonia or Asia Minor, she was probably not of noble birth (cf. Acts 17:4; Acts 17:12 ). The name is perhaps a corruption of Damalis, ‘a heifer.’ The Bezan MS omits it.

A. J. Maclean.
