Ben-Asher Aaron ben-Moses
By way of supplement to the art. AARON BEN-ASER, we add the following. He was born at Tiberias in the beginning of the 9th century. He is noted for having placed the vowels and accents under the text of the Hebrew Bible known as the Asher-Codex (q.v.). His work on the accents, entitled ספר דקדוקי הטעמים, has lately been edited by S. Bar and H. L. Strack under the title Die Dikduke Ha-Teamim des Ahron ben-Mloscheh bei scher und andere alte granzmatisch- massoretische Lehrtiicke, etc. (Leipsic, 1879), and forms a very valuable, contribution to the history of the text of the Old Testament (B. P.)
