Hanan the Egyptian
Hanan the Egyptian (Hebrew: חנן המצרי, translit: Hanan ha-Mitzri) was a respected 2nd-century tannaic sage who first lived at Alexandria. He later moved to the Judaea and was active among the scholars of Jabneh. He was a disciple of Rabbi Akiva and is quoted among "those who argued before the sages." Only one law, relating to the Temple service on the Day of Atonement, is preserved in his name (Yoma 63b).
