Wife of King Agrippa I., daughter of Phasaelus and Salampsio, and granddaughter of Herod I. She had three daughters, Berenice, Mariamne, and Drusilla and two sons, Agrippa and Drusus, the latter dying in childhood (Josephus, "Ant." 18:5, § 4 idem , "B. J." 2:11, § 6). When Agrippa I., while still a prince, was on the point of committing suicide in Idumæ a because of his poverty and debts, his wife Cypros restrained him, and bade him appeal for assistance to his half-sister Herodias, Princess of Galilee ("Ant." 18:6, § 2). The alabarch Alexander Lysimachus, while refusing Agrippa's request for the loan of a certain sum wherewith to pay his debts, granted the money to his brave and clever wife Cypros (ib. 6, § 3).
