SOLOMON OF TOURS:
French Talmudist; contemporary of Rashi, with whom he carried on a learned correspondence. Rashi addresses him as "My dear friend." This expression, as well as the factthat Rashi points out an error which Solomon had made in regard to the Talmud, proves that the latter can not be identical with Rashi's relative and teacher of the same name, whom Rashi even in his old age regarded as an authority.
