Masechet Megilah says that Haman's daughter threw the garbage on him. Does the gemoro mention her name anywhere?

I looked in Gemora Megilla 16a where the story is but it does not mention a name. Does anyone know where to find it?

The midrashim I found don't mention her name, but it seems that her name is mentioned in some old Aramaic translations of Esther.

I couldn't find one of these versions, but her name is mentioned as either "שבחטנות" (under "מדרשים") or "שכחטנת" (page 3, comment 20) or "שלחטוות" (page 4, comment 147).

  • You can find it in the Targum Sheni, printed in the back of the Mossad Harav Kook Megillat Esther.
