Abatur (Classical Mandaic:, also known as Abathur; Yawar, Classical Mandaic: ; and the Ancient of Days) is a Mandaean Uthra and the second of three subservient emanations generated by the Mandaean God Hayyi Rabbi (Classical Mandaic:, “The Great Living God”). His name means “father of the Uthras,” which is the Mandaean term for angels or guardians. The Ancient (Atiga) is his common moniker, and he is also known as the deeply concealed and guarded. He is referred to as the son of the first emanation, or Yoshamin (Classical Mandaic: ). He is sometimes referred to as the Polaris angel. He has two different personalities. Abatur Rama (Classical Mandaic:, the “high” or celestial Abatur) and his “lower” counterpart, Abatur of the Scales (Classical Mandaic:, romanized: Abatur Muzania), who weighs the souls of the deceased to determine their fate, are two of them. Abatur is sometimes referred to as Bhaq Ziwa in Mandaean scriptures such as the Qolasta.
