RAIMUCH (REMOCH), ASTRUC:

Physician of Fraga in the fourteenth century. As an Orthodox Jew he visited Benveniste ibn Labi of Saragossa and other prominent Jews; but in 1391 he renounced his religion, taking the name of Francisco Dias-Corni, and endeavored to convert his former Jewish friends, among them En-Shealtiel Bonfos, probably a son of the physician Isaac Bonfos b. Shealtiel of Falces.
