6) [line 26] REBBI YITZCHAK MIGDELA'AH - The MAHARATZ CHIYOS writes that it is not a coincidence that Rebbi Yitzchak Migdela'ah is discussing Migdalin (towers, i.e. stacking coins in the shape of a tower). Rather, since the only time this Amora is mentioned in all of Shas is with regard to Migdalin, he is referred to by a name that reflects the statement that he made. RAV REUVEN MARGOLIYOS (in l'Cheker Shemos v'Kinuyim b'Talmud 1:25) explains that there are many names in the Talmud that come about by similar circumstances, and shows that these are also nicknames based on what each Sage taught (see Insights to Berachos 53:4).
