(c. 1st Century BCE)
Salome was the daughter of Cypros and Antipater. She
is known mainly for severing the relationship between King
Herod and Mariamne,
his second wife. With the help of her mother, Cypros, Salome was able
to separate them. Because of this, Salome inherited a large part of
Herod's estate when he died.
