SIMEON B. 'AḲASHYAH:
Tanna of the second generation. Only one of his haggadic sentences has been preserved, namely, that explaining Job xii. 12, 20, in which he declares that coarse and uneducated persons lose in intelligence as they grow old, while scholars become more intelligent with advancing years (Ḳin. iii. 6).
