Tryphena

Tryphena [N] [H]

and Tryphosa (luxurious ), two Christian women at Rome, enumerated in the conclusion of St. Pauls letter. ( Romans 16:12 ) (A.D. 55.) They may have been sisters, but it is more likely that they were fellow deaconesses. We know nothing more of these two sister workers of the apostolic time.
