Mary (biblical, Romans 16:6)

In addition to Biblical Marys such as Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, and Lazarus's sister Mary, a Mary is mentioned in Romans 16:6. She is said to have treated Paul the Apostle with special kindness, and to have "laboured much among" the Roman Church.

Although it has been conjectured that she is the same person as the mother of John Mark, this is generally considered to be unproven.
