Damaris [EBD]

a heifer, an Athenian woman converted to Christianity under the preaching of Paul (Acts 17:34). Some have supposed that she may have been the wife of Dionysius the Areopagite.

Damaris [NAVE]

DAMARIS, a female convert of Athens, Acts 17:34.

DAMARIS [SMITH]

(a heifer), an Athenian woman converted to Christianity by St. Paul?s preaching. (Acts 17:34) (A.D 48.) Chrysostom and others held her to have been the wife of Dionysius the Areopagite.

DAMARIS [ISBE]

DAMARIS - dam'-a-ris (Damaris, possibly a corruption of damalis, "a heifer"): The name of a female Christian of Athens, converted by Paul's preaching (Acts 17:34). The fact that she is mentioned in this passage together with Dionysius the Areopagite has led some, most probably in error, to regard her as his wife. The singling out of her name with that of Dionysius may indicate some personal or social distinction. Compare Acts 17:12.
