Biography

Dealer in antiquities; sold large numbers of cuneiform tablets and a smaller quantity of other objects from Mesopotamia to The British Museum between 1877 and 1893, plus a number of tablets to the University of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania. NB There may be some confusion as some collections are registered as being published from one Mr Raphael Shemtob of Islington (e.g. 1877-11-14 coll.).
