, Persian officer who, at the battle of D̲h̲ū Ḳar [q.v.], was in command of the Persian troops who were driven back by the Bakr b. Wāʾil [q.v.] and who was killed in the battle. Al-Masʿūdī (Murūd̲j̲, ii, 228 = ed. Pellat, i, 648) calls him, in error, al-Hurmuzān, but he should not be confused with the Persian general of this name [q.v.] who was assassinated by ʿUbayd Allāh b. ʿUmar.
