Description

Business letter sent from Tripoli, Lebanon. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: Probably 11th century. Mentions terrible economic depression in the Levant and asks the addressee to send his letters to Tyre. The address is in Arabic script but it looks like it is just the blessings for the addressee, not his name (baqāhu wa-adāma ʿizzahu). Needs preservation; some of the text is hidden underneath folds.
