Abimi of Hagronia

A Babylonian amora of the fourth century, disciple of Raba b. Joseph and teacher of Rab Mordecai, the colleague of Rab Ashi. One of his aphorisms reads: "For the man whom women have slain there is no law and no judge" (B. M. 97a); that is, where a man suffers injury through his own weakness, he can not invoke the protection of the law (see Yeb. 64b; B. M. 77b; B. B. 174b; Mak. 13b).
