The vigilant Marys (Mt 27:61-27:61)

“Mary Magdalene

And the other Mary

Were there,

Sitting opposite

The tomb.”

 

Ἦν δὲ ἐκεῖ Μαριὰμ ἡ Μαγδαληνὴ καὶ ἡ ἄλλη Μαρία, καθήμεναι ἀπέναντι τοῦ τάφου.

 

This is similar to Mark, chapter 15:47.  However, the other Mary in Mark, is the mother of Jesus, not the mother of James and Joseph as in verse 40.  In Luke, chapter 23:55, there is only a mention of the other women from Galilee, with no mention of any Mary.  There is no indication of any women at the tomb in John, chapter 19.  Matthew said that Mary Magdalene (Ἦν δὲ ἐκεῖ Μαριὰμ ἡ Μαγδαληνὴ) and the other Mary (καὶ ἡ ἄλλη Μαρία) were there, sitting opposite of the tomb (καθήμεναι ἀπέναντι τοῦ τάφου).
