mal-ta-ne'-us (Maltannaios, Codex Vaticanus and Swete; Altannaios, Codex Alexandrinus and Fritzsche--the "M" being perhaps dropped because of the final "M" in the preceding word; the King James Version Altaneus):

One of the sons of Asom who put away his "strange wife" (1 Esdras 9:33) = "Mattenai" in Ezra 10:33.
