Adjiman

Jewish family in Turkey, several members of which were treasurers and intendants-general of the janizaries. Meir Adjiman, who lived under Selim III., possessed such influence that he was able to promote a simple janizary private to the rank of a saka-bachi. The same janizary had him strangled a few years later. A similar fate overtook his successors, the brothers Baruch and Jacob, and also Isaiah Adjiman, the last of whom met his death under Mohammed II.
