Big'tha (Heb. Bigtha', בַּגתָא, Gesenius thinks perhaps garden, SEE BIGVAI; but, according to Furst [Handwort. s.v.], the first syllable בַּגאּ appears to be the Βαγ so often met with in Persian prop., names [e.g. Bagorazus, Bagoas; SEE BIGTHAN, SEE ABAGTHA ], possibly connected with the Zend. baga and Sanscrit bhag c, fortune; while the termination אּתָא or אּתָן for אּת נָא may be the -τάνης likewise occurring in Persian prop. names [e.g. Otanes, Catanes, Petanes], from the Sanscrit tanu, Zend. ten, body or life; Sept. Βαραζί, but other copies [by confusion with one of the other names] Ζηβαδαθά; Vulg. Bagatha), the fourth named of the seven eunuchs (סָרַיסַים, "chamberlains"), having charge of the harem of Xerxes ("Ahasuerus"), and commanded to bring in Vashti to the king's drinking- party (Es 1:10). B.C. 483.
