BONGODAS COHEN:

Provençal physician; flourished in 1353. No details of his life can be ascertained. He was the author of a Latin work on obstetrics, still extant in a Turin manuscript (Pasini, cod. 80, 3). If Steinschneider is right, and "Cohen" () is a mistake for "Nathan" () Bongodas may be identical with Judah Nathan, a Provençal writer on medicine and translator, between the years 1352 and 1358.
