1 Rav Dimi and Ravin on Tue Aug 13, 2013 11:43 am

On Yoma 3b, אתא רב דימי, Rav Dimi "shows up" from Eretz Yisroel, and throws a wrench into a couple of blatt of discussions, by saying that Rabbi Yochonon disagrees with everything they've been saying. This is really common, I think; a cursory search shows eight כי אתא רב דימי in Yoma alone.

Then אתא רבין, and Ravin disagrees with Rav Dimi's information, and basically seems to say that Rabbi Yochonon agreed with everyone and Reish Lakish is the one who disagrees. This happens a lot too; there are five in Yoma alone. (Almost) always Rav Dimi came first and Ravin corrects him.

Does that mean that Rav Dimi came one time, taught zillions of ma'amarim in the name of Rabbi Yochanon and Reish Lakish, and then Ravin came one time later with corrections? Do we know?

עולא (Ula) does the same kind of thing, turns over the discussion in Bavel, but isn't (usually?) part of the sequence of Rav Dimi, then Ravin. Did he also come exactly one time?

I'm sure travel was hard in those days.
