(1) A Reubenite (1 Ch 5:8, Codex Vaticanus and Codex Alexandrinus Sama, Lucian, Semeei).
(2) One of the heads of "fathers' houses" in Aijalon, who put to flight the inhabitants of Gath (1 Ch 8:13, Codex Vaticanus and Codex Alexandrinus Sama, Lucian, Samoa); in 1 Ch 8:21 he is called "Shimei." The statement is very obscure and the whole incident is probably due to some marginal note.
(3) One of those who stood at Ezra's right during the reading of the Law (Neh 8:4, Samaias). He is called "Sammus" in 1 Esdras 9:43.
