* Salomé (also Salome) is a one-act play by The Irish writer Oscar Wilde.
The play is about the biblical story that appears in Matthew 14 and Mark 6. However, the name Salomé is not mentioned in these Bible stories, but by Flavius Josephus (Ancient history of the Jews, 18.5.4:136). The tetrarch Herod Antipas asks his stepdaughter Salomé to dance for him during a party. In return, she may ask him for whatever she wants. She agrees to dance the dance of the seven veils and in return asks for, partly at the instigation of her mother Herodias, the head of John the Baptist (Jokanaan). [Source: Wikipedia]
