فيها توفي بالكوفة أبو عبد الله شريك بن عبد الله بن أبي شريك. تولى القضاء أيام المهدي ثم عزله الهادي. وكان عالما عادلا، كثير الصواب، حاضر الجواب، ذكر عنده معاوية بالحلم فقال: ليس بحليم من سفه الحق وقاتل عليا. ولد ببخارى سنة خمس وتسعين.

Al-Dhahabi said: He was one of the leading scholars. He narrated good traditions. He was an imam, a jurist (faqih), and a traditionist with numerous traditions, though he was not equal to Hammad b. Zayd in skill. Al-Bukhari has cited his tradition and Muslim has followed al-Bukhari in narrating from him. Yahya b. Ma`in has considered him reliable.
