Rav Chanah bar Chanilai

Rav Huna ordered a fast, and levied a Charity-Tax on a community, including Rav Chanah bar Chanilai, which came for the fast. He insisted that the money be used for the poor of his own community, pointing to his own status in running the charity, and to the fact that their poor relied on him as well: Megillah 27a-b
Rav Huna wouldn't allow Rav Chanah bar Chanilai to carry a shovel for him, before determining that Rav Chana ordinarily carried shovels: Megillah 28a
