Hallo one and all,

Does anyone have any information about the tribe (nation) of Amalek outside
of what the tanach already gives?

Its origins are well attested but I am more interested in whether or not
this nation in the sinai had a reputation for something, eg: excessive
cruelty or whatever.  (rather like Ireland long ago where you had all
different clans in a certain era but everyone knew who the 'gallowglas'
were - mercenries).
