The term Βουγα οsigma, applied to Haman in the LXX and Alpha Text of Esther, represents a nomen gentilicium figuratively identifying the otherwise far-removed Persian antagonist with the ancient Beja of the Red Sea littoral. Support for this understanding is to be found in 1) the use of Βουγα οsigma elsewhere in reference to the Beja, 2) the gentilic implication of in its onomastic context, and 3) the consistently inimical portrayal of the ancient Beja in historical sources.
