SENIOR, PHOEBUS BEN JACOB ABIGDOR:

Talmudic scholar and author; lived in thefirst half of the eighteenth century. He wrote a commentary on the six orders of the Mishnah, entitled "Melo Kaf Naḥat," in which he collected explanations from Rashi, Maimonides, Bertinoro, and Tosafot Yom-Ṭob, and made extracts especially from Isaac ibn Gabbai's commentary "Kaf Naḥat." His work was printed with the text of the Mishnah in six volumes (Amsterdam, 1732; Offenbach, 1737), and later in the edition of the Mishnah with a German translation by Jost (Berlin, 1832-34).
