JACOB OF KEFAR ḤIṬṬAYA ():

Palestinian scholar of the second century; contemporary of Judah I. Jacob is said to have been in the habit of visiting his teacher every day (Ḥag. 5b). Heilprin ("Seder ha-Dorot," ii.) concluded that he was a pupil of Akiba and teacher of Judah I.; this, however, is not certain.
