R. Joseph Modiano (c. 1714-1781) lived at Salonica at the end of the eighteenth century. He belonged to a family originally from Modena, Italy, the descendants of which are prominent in financial and industrial enterprise in Salonica. He corresponded with R. Hayyim ben David Abulafia, rabbi of Smyrna. Modiano published two works: Uryan Telitai (Salonica, 1795) and Rosh Mashbir, responsa (2 vols., ib. 1821 and 1840). The former is a collection of novellæ on various Talmudic treatises by R. Nahmani, Ibn Migash, R. Yom-Tob b. Abraham, R. Samuel Isaac of Salonica (18th cent.), and by R. Modiano himself. The latter work was published posthumously. He passed on in Salonica.
