BENJAMIN B. GIDDEL, R. (or GIDDUL):
A Palestinian amora of the fourth generation (fourth century), contemporary of R. Aḥa III. (Yer. Ma'as. Sh. v. 56b; Yer. Yeb. i. 2b). His name is but rarely met with in the Talmud, and then only in the Halakah (Yer. Ma'as. i. 49a; Ḥul. 125a). It is probable that he was the son of Giddel b. Benjamin (Minyomi) and therefore of Babylonian descent.
