Abbaye's Involvement with Rava and Rav Pappa

Asked Rava who would eulogize Rava, given that the people of Pumbedita hated him: Shabbat 153a

Rava sending a response to Abbaye, via Rav Shemaya bar Zeira: Eruvin 93a

Abbaye and Rava were labelled "dardiki [Children]" by Rav Yosef, for schemes they invented for carrying items prohibited for carrying on Shabbat: Shabbat 142b

Abbaye used to entertain Rava [perhaps Rabbah] by juggling eight, or perhaps four, eggs: Succah 53a

Abbaye offers an answer which deviates from an existing Talmudic text, and Rava refuses it: Shabbat 122b; Pesachim 46a; Ketuvot 12a; Sotah 7b, 8b, 11a; Bechorot 4a

Abbaye in a dispute with Rava, flipping sides with him: Shabbat 92a

Abbaye answering for Rava's side in a debate: Shabbat 123a

Abbaye Killing Rav Pappa's parents via Evil Eye: Yevamot 106a

Called Rav Pappa "Yatom [Orphan]": (see Rashi) Ketuvot 17b

Placed Rav Pappa in the path of a "Ketev Meriri" Spirit instead of Rav Huna Beraih DeRav Yehoshu'a, because Rav Pappa was rich and had better Mazal: Pesachim 111b

Abbaye and Rava had a lifelong disagreement regarding transport on Shabbat in a certain alley in the house of Bar Chavu: Eruvin 15a

Rava diluted and then tasted wine and didn't like it, so he returned it to the store. Abbaye challenged him that the merchant might then sell it as undiluted wine: Bava Metzia 60a
