Junia, or Rather Junias
Ju'nia, Or Rather Ju'nias (Ι᾿ουνίας, a deriv. of Junius, the name of a Roman family), a Christian at Rome, to whom Paul addressed a salutation in connection with Andronicus, as being his "kinsmen and fellow prisoners, who, are of note among the apostles," and were in Christ before himself (Ro 16:7); hence probably of Jewish extraction. A.D. 55. As the gender of the epithets applied is uncertain (συγγενεῖς καὶ συναιχμαλώτους), some (e.g. Origen, Chrysostom, and other fathers) have supposed a female (Ι᾿ουνίαν comes equally well from Ι᾿ουνία) to be meant (but see Michaelis, in Pott's Sylloge, 7, 128).
