Babylonian amora of the third generation; a native of Pumbedita, and probably a pupil of R. Judah. He once went to Sura on the eve of the Day of Atonement, and attracted attention by conduct which was not regarded as permissible there. According to Ḥul. 110a, b, he justified his behavior, when brought before R. Ḥisda, by citing a saying of R. Judah's, thereby proving himself an acute scholar. In the same passage he is identified with Rami b. Diḳuli, who transmits a saying of Samuel in Yeb. 80a. In another passage he is designated as the father-in-law of Rami b. Diḳuli (Men. 29b).
