The Gemara (Bab. Shab. 23b) relates a story about one R' Avin Nagara ("The Carpenter").
Was he a Rabbi? Or was this merely an honorary title given to him because of his great children (as related in the story)?
Was he a carpenter? Or was that his surname? If he was a carpenter, why was he so well known (so Rav Huna can just mention his name without directly associating him with his famous children)?
What else is known about him?
