Could have been a Pole.

By his pseudonym he was likely to have been a badkhan (comedian). He had left a play, which his brother Hersh Gedalya Belloy had published after his death, which was named "Mozes [,], or the liberation of the Israelites out of Egypt, created by Shlomo Badkhan z"l." Published by his brother Hirsh Gedalya Belloy with a new addition, emphasis [fervert]? [Bdfus] R' Yitzhak Rother N. Y., 1967", [p. 71, 32].

The play was contained in seven acts, divided into scenes.
