Commentator (probably a contemporary of Elijah Mizraḥi); lived in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, probably at Constantinople. He wrote a supercommentary on Rashi's Bible Commentary. Only a small fragment of it, covering the weekly portion "Mas'ey," has been published in Jacob Canizal's collectanea, a very rare collection of supercommentaries on Rashi (Steinschneider, "Cat. Bodl." No. 5515). Abraham died in 1525, at a very old age.
