Esther 8:10  (King James Version)
And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus' name, and sealed it with the king's ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries:

in the king
1 Kings 21:8 ; Ecclesiastes 8:4 ; Daniel 4:1

by posts
3:13 2 Chronicles 30:6 ; Job 9:25 ; Jeremiah 51:21

{Rechesh,} in Syriac, {rechesha,} probably denotes a swift horse.

{Achashteranim,} from the Persian {akhash,} large, and
{aster,} a mule, probably, as Bochart supposes, denotes a large mule.

young dromedaries
{Beney harammachim,} "the sons of mares," as the word
{ramakat} denotes in Arabic; probably an expletive of the preceeding word.
Isaiah 60:6 ; 66:20 Jeremiah 2:23
