Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
SALOME . 1 . The daughter (unnamed in NT) of Herodias. who danced before Herod and received as a reward the head of John the Baptist ( Matthew 14:3-11 , Mark 6:17-20 ). 2 . One of the women who were present at the crucifixion ( Mark 15:40 ) and who afterwards visited the sepulchre ( Mark 16:1 ). By comparing Mark 15:40 and Matthew 27:66 it has been almost certainly concluded that Salome was the wife of Zebedee, who also figures in the Incident Matthew 20:20-23 . The conjecture that Salome was the sister of Mary the mother of Jesus has no adequate support.
