Rab-mag


Rab-mag, Jer. 39:3, 13, a title borne by Nergal-sharezer, probably identical with the king called by the Greeks Neriglissar. [Nergal-sharezer.] (It probably means chief of the magi; at all events it was “an office of great power and dignity at the Babylonian court, and probably gave its possessor special facilities for gaining the throne.”)
