الوصف

Narrative text in Judaeo-Arabic (should be checked against Alf Layla). On recto a man is telling another man, "I would like to marry you to my daughter," followed by various flattering phrases. On verso there is a rather shocking scene: "... and he approached her to chop off her head (ליצרב ענק[הא])... and found her sleeping, with her little boy sleeping on her chest... and the other with his head on her shoulder... and he said, 'My soul! How can I kill my wife?'"
