chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on
the King Ahasuerus;
see ( Esther 2:21 ) , and it was usual in such diaries to record the names of persons, who, by any actions, had deserved well of the king, that they might be rewarded as there was an opportunity for it; and such, in the Persian language, were called Orosangae, as Herodotus relates F15.
