Is there a feminine version of the old Greek word "Έμπορος" meaning merchant or trader?

The word "έμπορος" can be either masculine (ο έμπορος) or feminine (η έμπορος). The noun is the same and only the article changes.

For the feminine version, there is also another form of the same word (η εμπόρισσα). This form is less formal and it is used mainly in oral speech.
