Abagtha is a Persian name having common roots with Bigtha (Esther 1:10), Bigthan (Esther 2:21), and Bigthana (Esther 6:2). The exact name is mentioned only in Esther 1:10. Abagtha was one of the seven chamberlains (probably eunuchs) who were commanded to bring Queen Vashti before King Ahasuerus (historically known as Xerxes) in 483BC [Reese]. These chamberlains acted as guardians of the royal harem and ministered before the king.
