Salo'me. (peaceful).

1. The wife of Zebedee, Matthew 27:56; Mark 15:40, and, probably, sister of Mary, the mother of Jesus, to whom reference is made in John 19:25. The only events recorded of Salome are that, she preferred a request on behalf of her two sons for seats of honor in the kingdom of heaven, Matthew 20:20, that she attended at the crucifixion of Jesus, Mark 15:40, and that she visited his sepulchre. Mark 16:1. She is mentioned by name on only the two latter occasions.

2. The daughter of Herodias, by her first husband, Herod Philip. Matthew 14:6. She married in the first, the tetrarch of Trachonitis, her paternal uncle, and, secondly, Aristobulus, the king of Chalcis.
