Son of). In Judea we find a single example of this form—Simeon b. (= ben) Antipatris, who was active in the generation after the destruction of the Second Temple. 10 In other sources as well, this formulation means that the sage is from place Y. There are three such instances among Galilean sages. Thus, for example, Menahem b. (= ben) Signai means Menahem of the village of Signah in the Lower Galilee. 11 A similar formulation is found for a sage who may have been active in Golan—R. Jacob b. Kurshai, the teacher of R.

Halafta in Ein Te"enah” (j. Ta"anit :, a, based on Neusner, :). This reference explicitly states that R. Simeon bar Halafta lived in Ein Te"enah. In another example we find: “Rabbi and R.
