Greet Mary! (Rom 16:6)

“Greet Mary!

Who has worked hard

Among you.”

ἀσπάσασθε Μαριάν, ἥτις πολλὰ ἐκοπίασεν εἰς ὑμᾶς.

Paul said to greet Mary (ἀσπάσασθε Μαριάν), who has worked hard (ἥτις πολλὰ ἐκοπίασεν) among you (εἰς ὑμᾶς).  Paul wanted the Roman Christians to greet Mary, who had been working or toiling hard or much among them.  Who is this Mary?  There was no further description about her except that she was a busy hard worker among the Roman Christians.  There is no indication of how Paul knew her either.  Do you know how many different Mary’s there are in the Greek New Testament writings?
