(בן זיטא ), a distinguished Jew, flourished at Irak towards the close of the 9th century. He wrote a commentary on the Scriptures, of which fragments only are left. Such we find in Aben-Ezra (on Exodus 21:24; Exodus 21:35; Exodus 22:28). Saadia Gaon thought Ibn-Sitta of sufficient importance to refute his interpretations, while Aben-Ezra exercises his withering sarcasm upon him. Kitto, Cyclop. of Bibl. Lit. 2, 358; Pinsker, Likkute Kadmonioth (Vienna, 1860), p. 43; Furst, Gesch. d. Karaerthums (Lpz. 1862), p. 100,173.
