Shlomo ben Eliyahu Sharvit haZahav (born circa 1420 and died after 1502) was a payyetan who flourished in 15th century Greece and Turkey. Several of his poems were included in the Maḥzor Romania. He also translated several astronomical works from Greek into Hebrew, composed a Hebrew grammar entitled Ḥesek Shlomoh, wrote a commentary to the Torah and, in response to the request of several prominent representatives of the community in Ephesus, a commentary to Abraham ibn Ezra's Sefer ha-Shem.
