I heard before (I think in the name of the Rogatchover) that there is one Amora in every masechta of Talmud that does not appear in any other masechta.

Is there a source for this, and is there a list somewhere of each masechta's unique Amora?

That legend of the Rogachuver has never been verified onthemainline.blogspot.com/2007/01/… –  Double AA Feb 13 at 4:10
    
@DoubleAA I would think it would be a pretty easy one to test, with computers. –  YEZ Feb 13 at 4:10
    
Computers won't help you decide if he said it or not... –  Double AA Feb 13 at 4:13
    
FWIW Tamid has [רבי ינאי בר נחמני]([g tamid 29a]) –  Double AA Feb 13 at 4:23
    
@DoubleAA Computers could confirm the veracity of the rumor. I'm not so much interested in who said it. My question is pretty clear about what info I'm looking for. –  YEZ Feb 13 at 4:40
