SIMEON BEN HA-SEGAN (called also simply Ha-Segan):
Tanna of the second generation. Some halakic sayings of his have been preserved in the Mishnah, all of which have been transmitted by Simeon ben Gamaliel (Sheḳ. viii. 5; Ket. ii. 8; Men. xi. 9). He is perhaps identical with Simeon ben Kahana, in whose name Simeon ben Gamaliel also transmits halakic sayings (Tosef., Parah, xi. 6).
