Name by which Joseph b. Judah Ḥamiẓ, a pupil of Leon of Modena, is erroneously known. He was the author of "Belil Ḥamiẓ" (see Isa. xxx. 24), for which Modena claims he wrote an introduction; the work is not otherwise known. Perhaps he was the author also of "Yode'e Binah," a work which Azulai mentions having seen in a partly burned and illegible condition. Romi wrote a commentary to Zohar Genesis, which was continued by Moses Zacuto. In 1663 he edited at Venice the Zohar Ḥadash.
