Akkasi, Jacob Ben-moses

Akkasi, Jacob Ben-Moses, of Huesca, lived towards the end of the 13th century. Nothing is known of him except that he translated the Mishna commentary to the treatise Nashim (נָשַׁים) from the Arabic of Maimonides into Hebrew for the Jews of Rome in 1298. Gratz is of opinion that his name is not Akkasi, but Abbasi. See Furst, Bibl. Jud. i, 29; Gratz, Gesch. d. Juden, 7, 284. (B. P.)
