Abaye was a rabbi of the Jewish Talmud who lived in Babylonia [בבל], known as an amora [אמורא] born about the close of the third century; died 339 CE (see Talmudic Academies in Babylonia). His father, Kaylil, was the brother of Rabbah bar Nachmani, a teacher at the Academy of Pumbedita. Abaye's real name was Nachmani, after his grandfather. Left an orphan at an early age, he was adopted by his uncle, Rabbah bar Nachmani, who nicknamed him Abaye ("Little Father"), to avoid confusion (perhaps respect for his father) with his grandfather of the same name; thenceforth he was known as Abaye, without any other title. It is a curious fact that he perpetuated the memory of his foster-mother by mentioning her name in many popular recipes and dietetic precepts, some of which seem to be based on superstitious notions. He introduced each recipe with the phrase, "My mother told me." Abaye's teachers were his uncle Rabbah and Joseph bar Chama, both of whom successively became presidents of the Pumbedita Academy. When Joseph died (324 CE), this dignity was conferred upon Abaye, who retained it until his death some five years later. Rabbah trained him in the application of the dialectic method to halakhic problems, and Joseph, with his stores of traditional lore, taught him to appreciate the value of positive knowledge.

Nato alla fine del III secolo, da un padre di nome Kalyl, il suo vero nome, ereditato dal nonno, era invece Naḥmani (Nahmani). Restato orfano in piccola età, fu adottato da Rabbah bar Naḥmani, lo zio paterno, che gli diede il nomignolo di Abaye ("Piccolo padre"), ad evitare confusione con il nonno da cui aveva preso il nome. Fece parte degli Amorei babilonesi e fu a capo dell'Accademia di Pūmbĕdītā a Babilonia, la stessa in cui insegnava Rabbah bar Naḥmani, lo zio che lo aveva adottato.
