An officer sent with Rabshakeh and Tartan, to summon Hezekiah, 2 Kings 18:17 Jeremiah 39:3 . It signifies "the chief of the eunuchs." Such officers, high in honor and in trust, are found on the mural tablets of Nineveh so wonderfully preserved to this day; and in the Ottoman Porte of our own times the Kislar Aga, or chief of the black eunuchs, is one of the highest dignitaries. See SHALMANEZER.
