Rabbi at Rome in 1543, and a member of the communal board of administrators (stewards of the ghetto) up to the year 1564. In 1558 he, with other prominent Jews of Rome, guaranteed to refund to Elijah Corcos the sum of 1,000 scudi (about $970), which the latter had paid to the papal authorities of Rome as a fine inflicted upon the Jewish community for their failure to burn certain Hebrew books.

Reuben Abdon, his son, was steward after him, from 1576 to 1584.

A Samuel b. Moses Abdon is also mentioned in 1507.
