AMAN:

1. This name is found only in the Apocrypha, Tobit, xiv. 10. He is there mentioned as the persecutor of Achiacharus, but even in that passage the reading is not certain, the versions giving Nadab, Accab, and Adam as possible readings. See AḦikar. 2. For Aman in Apocr. Esther, xii. 6. xvi. 10, 17, read Haman.
