Zutra, Mar. Three Jewish exilarchs of the 5th and 6th cents. CE. Mar Zutra I (d. c.414), known as ‘the pious’, was famous for his compassion and exemplary character. Mar Zutra II (d. 520) defeated the Persians and set up an independent Jewish state, 513–20. His son, Mar Zutra III, was traditionally born on the day his father was executed. He left Babylon and eventually settled in Erez Israel.
