ALBELDA (sometimes erroneously written Albilda and Albeylda), MOSES:

A Bible commentator (died 1549) who took his name from the town of Albelda, whence it is thought he or his ancestors must have come. About the beginning of the sixteenth century he settled at Salonica, Turkey, where he resided until his death at an advanced age. A supercommentary upon Rashi's Pentateuch commentary was written by him and published, presumably at Constantinople, about 1525, though neither place nor date of publication is mentioned in the work.
