Rabshakeh [E]

(chief cupbearer ), ( 2 Kings 19:1 ; Isaiah 36:1 ; Isaiah 37:1 ) ... one of the officers of the king of Assyria sent against Jerusalem in the reign of Hezekiah. [HEZEKIAH] (B.C. 713.) The English version takes Rabshakeh as the name of a person; but it is more probably the name of the office which he held at the court, that of chief cupbearer. [E] indicates this entry was also found in Easton's Bible Dictionary
