MARLI (), SAMUEL RAPHAEL BEN MAẒLIAḤ:
Italian Talmudist and liturgist of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. According to S. D. Luzzatto, the name "Marli" means "of Arles" (Steinschneider, "Hebr. Bibl." iv. 97, v. 46). Marli was the head of the yeshibah of Mantua (Abraham Portaleone, "Shilṭe ha-Gibborim," p. 20a), and was one of the rabbis that participated in the heated controversy over the "Miḳwah" of Rovigo (Moses Porto, "Palge Mayim," p. 55).
