Sam'atus (Σαματός; Vulg. Semedius), given in the Apocrypha (1 Esdr. 9:34) as the name of the fourth of the six sons of Osora (i.e. Abiah or Mochnadebai) among those Israelites who had married foreign wives after the captivity; but the Heb. list (Ezr 10:41-42) contains the names Shelemiah, Shemariah, and Shallum in the corresponding place.
