(1) The mother of the man who was stoned for blasphemy (Leviticus 24:11) (BAF, Salomeith, Lucian, Salmith).

(2) Daughter of Zerubbabel (1 Chronicles 3:19) (Codex Vaticanus Salomethei; Codex Alexandrinus Salomethi, Lucian, Salomith).

(3) One of the "sons of Izhar" (1 Chronicles 23:18) (Codex Vaticanus Salomoth; Codex Alexandrinus Saloumoth, Lucian, Salomith), called "Shelomoth" in 24:22.
