Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
SYROPHÅ’NICIAN . This is the designation of a ‘Greek’ (or Gentile) woman whose demoniac daughter Jesus healed when near Tyre ( Mark 7:26 ). She was perhaps Greek-speaking (Swete), but was descended from the old PhÅ“nicians of Syria (|| Matthew 15:22 has ‘Canaanitish’).
