(hay' muhn) Personal name meaning, “magnificent.” The Agagite who became prime minister under the Persian king Ahasuerus (Esther 3:1 ). He was a fierce enemy of the Jews, and he devised a plot to exterminate them. In particular, he had a gallows erected on which he hoped to hang Mordecai because Mordecai would not bow to him. Through the intervention of Esther, however, his scheme was unmasked; and he was hanged on the gallows he had designed for Mordecai the Jew. See Esther .
