    CANDACE [Greek Kandake].
    A queen of Ethiopia, i.e., probably, of Meroe, in southern Nubia.  A eunuch of great authority at her court, being converted to Christianity when on a visit to Palestine through the instrumentality of Philip the evangelist, seems to have introduced his new faith into that African region (Acts viii. 26-39).  Strabo, Dion Cassius, and Pliny all concur in stating that Meroe in the first century of the Christian era was governed by a succession of queens, each called Candace. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894).
