He didn't quite deserve that kind of punishment. Because after all he had every right to hate Antonio as he insulted Shylock in public and even spat on him. It is good that he did not get Antonio's flesh but at least he should have got the money that he deserved.

Though shylock is shown as a shrewd and cunning character and is the antagonist of the story, the punishment he got at the end makes the readers feel sorry for him. his daughter betrayed him and he lost most of his wealth. moreover, he was made to convert to Christianity. though his intentions to kill antonio were wrong, his reasons to loath him were justified. the punishment he got was more of a triumph of the christians over the jews which was a a very inhuman thing to do.
hope this ans helps you

Shylock was persued by Portia into claiming his crime. Still, Antonio lossened his punishment but it was still too much for such a crime. He deserved much less punishment than he got.
