Recto: Fragment, 11 lines in a chancery(?) hand, difficult to read. Needs examination. Perforated binding. Verso: Mamlukī names in pretty naskhī script on verso. Including Alṭbughā al-ʿUthmānī / الطبغا العثماني, whom al-Maqrīzī mentions in Kitāb al-Sulūk under Jumādā II 799 AH = March 1397 CE. The chronicles also mention an الطنبغا, not immediately clear if this is the same amīr. Another person on the list is a Circassian (جركس) and another's name begins قطلـ.
