(Δάμαρις ) an Athenian woman converted to Christianity by Paul's preaching (Acts 17:34), A.D. 48. Chrysostom (de Sacerdotio, 4:7) and others held her to have been the wife of Dionysius the Areopagite, but apparently for no other reason than that she is mentioned together with him in this passage. Grotius and Hemsterhuis think the name should be Damalis, Δάμαλις (signifying heifer), which is frequently found as a woman's name; but the permutation of λ and ρ was not uncommon both in pronunciation and writing (Lobeck on Phrynichus, p. 652).
