ELISHA BEN ABRAHAM:

Hebraist and Talmudist; flourished at the end of the fifteenth century. He was the author of "Magen Dawid," a vindication of David Ḳimḥi's grammar against the strictures of Efodi and David ben Yaḥya (Constantinople, 1517). The book is prefaced by an acrostic poem, giving the author's name.
