الوصف

Recto: Letter fragment. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: Likely 13th or 14th century based on handwriting. Reporting that someone is in a sorry state and under house arrest (tarsīm). He is charged 1/2 nuqra a day, and now owes 20 dirhams. He sent a letter asking Dāʾūd for help to no avail. Now he has sent another, heartbreaking letter. The sender presumably goes on to ask the addressee to help this man. Verso: Letter fragment. In Arabic script. Addressed to a son or son-like figure ("yā waladī..."). Exhorting him to "do his work" (iqḍi shughlak) and also refers to "this man" (the same unfortunate man from recto?). Urges haste (surʿa surʿa). Needs further examination.
