SAMUEL BEN NATHAN:
Amora of the early part of the fourth century, He appears mostly as the transmitter of the sayings of Ḥama b. Ḥanina (Shab. 38a. note; Yer. Shab. 5d). On one occasion Ḥama b. Ḥanina transmits a tradition of Samuel concerning his journey to the baths at Gadar in company with his father (Yer. Ter. 41c).
