pûr´sis ( Περσίς , Persı́s ): The name of a female member of the Christian community at Rome, to whom Paul sent greetings ( Romans 16:12 ). Paul designates her "the beloved, who labored much in the Lord." The name is not found in inscriptions of the imperial household, but it occurs as the name of a freedwoman (CIL, VI, 23, 959).
