ASTRUC DÉS GABBAI, or ABBA MARI BEN ABRAHAM:

Provençal scholar; lived at Béziers toward the end of the thirteenth century and the beginning of the fourteenth. Nothing is known of his life and his scientific activity. His name was transmitted by his relative, or perhaps by his grandson, Abraham Bedersi, who in an elegy composed on the occasion of the death of Don Bonafos Roguet bewails also Astruc dès Gabbai, who died several years before.
