Nymphas
        

A disciple at Laodicea, whom Paul salutes "and the church which is in his house" (Colossians 4:15). An assembly of Christians met in his house. So delta, G, f, g, the Vulgate. (See NEW TESTAMENT.) But the Sinaiticus and the Alexandrinus and the Ephraemi Rescriptus manuscripts read "which is in their house," the Vaticanus manuscript has "her house," making Nymphas a woman.
