Philip and his four prophetic daughters (Acts 21:9)

“Philip

Had four unmarried daughters,

Who had the gift

Of prophecy.”

τούτῳ δὲ ἦσαν θυγατέρες τέσσαρες παρθένοι προφητεύουσαι.

The author of Acts indicated that Philip had (τούτῳ δὲ ἦσαν) four (τέσσαρες) unmarried (παρθένοι) daughters (θυγατέρες), who had the gift of prophecy (προφητεύουσαι).  This evangelist Philip, who was a member of the seven ordained Hellenists, had four unmarried or virgin prophetic daughters.  There was no indication of their age, probably teenagers, if Philip had married before the conversion of Saul.  He must have had a house big enough to hold this traveling contingent with Paul.  Do you know anyone with the gift of prophecy?
