ALI B. ABRAHAM AL-TAWIL:
Karaite scholar; flourished at Ramleh, Egypt, in the twelfth century. He was the author of a commentary on the Bible, no longer extant. Indeed, his very name remained unknown until recently, when it was brought to the attention of scholars by the publication, by G. Margoliouth, of Al-Hiti's chronicle, which mentions Ali among the Karaite doctors of the twelfth century.
- Margoliouth, in Jew. Quart. Rev. ix. 434.
