French physician and translator; flourished in the second half of the sixteenth century. He translated, in 1583, under the title "Mebo Arnabat," Arnauld of Villanova's dissertation on Hippocrates' maxim "Ars longa, vita brevis" (Neubauer, "Cat. Bodl. Hebr. MSS." No. 2133, 7.) It was annotated by the translator, extracts from the notes being given by Steinschneider in the Munich Catalogue (p. 95). Steinschneider (Cat. Munich, p. 206) identifies Gabriel with Gabriel Cohen of Lunel, who is mentioned in a medical work (Neubauer, ib. No. 2285), an identification doubted by Neubauer and Gross.
