RIQUETTI, JOSEPH SHALLIṬ BEN ELIEZER:

Scholar of the seventeenth century. He spent his youth at Safed, and subsequently settled at Verona. There in 1646 he published Gerondi's book "Yiḥus ha-Ẓaddiḳim." He then published at Amsterdam a map of Palestine under the title "Ḥokmat ha-Mishkan" or "Iggeret Meleket ha-Mishkan." In 1676 he went to Mantua, where he was busy with a second edition of his "Yiḥus," which was subsequently published in that city.
