Abdima Naḥota:

A Palestinian amora of the fourth century; contemporary of the Babylonian amoraim Rab Ḥisda and Rab Joseph. He was senior to R. Assi II., who delivered halakic decisions in his name. Like Abin III., he was wont to travel and to disseminate traditions among the academies of his native country and of Babylonia; hence his surname Naḥota, which means one who is wont to go down to Babylonia. See Dimi.
