. . .IMATIA OSA EPOIEI MET AUTWN OUSA H DORKAS.

I understand from this that Dorcas had been 'with' the widows. Does the construction of the Greek give enough evidence to indicate that Dorcas was 'among' the widows, i.e. that she was one of them?
Is the context of the passage any help, given that Dorcas is never referred to as a 'wife/woman' (GUNH)?
