Asnekoth, Saadia ben-Levi

a Jewish writer of Morocco, who lived in the 17th century, is the author of an Arabic version of Genesis, Psalms, and Daniel, which is preserved in the British Museum at London, MS. No. 5503. That he is the author of this version may be seen from the superscription given at the beginning of the book of Genesis: סעדיה בר לוי יצ ו ממרויקש יקֹא תרגום ערבי על התורה . As this version is of recent date, its value cannot be great. See Dbderlein, in Eichhorn's Repertorium fur bibl. und morgenldndische Literatur, ii, 153 sq.; Wolf, Bibl. Hebr. iii, 863; De' Rossi, Dizionario Storico (Germ. transl.), p. 49; Bauer, Critica Sacra, p. 324. (B. P.)
