BONGODAS, MEÏR BEN SOLOMON:

Provençal poet; lived at the end of the thirteenth century. He is quoted in the diwan of Abraham Bedersi, who was chosen arbitrator between Bongodas and Don Solomon in a controversy on the value of their Aramaic poems. According to Neubauer (in "Zunz Jubelschrift," p. 139), Meïr Bongodas is identical with Meïr ben Solomon Dels-Enfantz, to whom Jedaiah Bedersi dedicated his work, "Oheb Nashim."
