Palestinian halakist of the fifth century; disciple of R. Mana the Younger (Yer. Ter. i. 40b, vii. 44d). By a clerical error his name is sometimessubstituted for that of Azariah a haggadist of an earlier generation (Yer. Shab. vii. 9b; Yer. Pes. i. 28a [some lines below "Ezra" is quoted]); and this has led some writers into the error of considering the two scholars as identical (see Azariah).
