SAMA B. RAḲTA:

Babylonian amora of the sixth generation. He was a contemporary of Rabina I., with whom he disputed concerning a halakah (Ḳid. 9a), and to whom he communicated a saying of Rab Awia (B. M. 10b, the correct reading in Rabbinowitz). He is probably identical with the R. Sama who with Rabina sat before R. Ashi (Men. 42a).
