The Talmud (TB Megillah 13b) states that only Mordecai understood Bigthan
and Teresh, who conversed in their native Tarsian when plotting against the king.
For example, Mordecai "accidentally" witnessed the conversation between Bigthan
and Teresh at the king's gate (Esth 2:19-22) and uncovered a plot to kill the king, which had to be rewarded by Ahasuerus.
