Elialis (Person)
ELIALIS (PERSON) [Gk Elialis (Ἐλιαλις)]. A son of Bani who divorced his foreign wife during Ezra’s reform (1 Esdr 9:34). Although 1 Esdras is often assumed to have been compiled from Ezra and Nehemiah, Elialis does not appear as a son of Bani in Ezra 10:34–37. Omissions such as this also raise questions
