Chapter Name

Every Tractate of the Mishnah and Talmud is divided into chapters. Each chapter has a name, which is usually derived from the opening word (or words) of the text of the Mishnah.
When several chapters in a tractate begin with the same word, some other identifier is added to the name: e.g. "The First," "Last," "Greater," etc.

Both the name and the number of the chapter are indicated in the top central area of the page.
