Description

Recto: Letter in the hand of Moshe b. Levi ha-Levi, presumably from Qalyub to his father in Fustat. He had just been in Fustat, advocating for himself with the Nagid Sar Shalom (Abu Zikri) against the machinations of Ibn al-Taffal against him. He has now arrived safely in Qalyub, and he informed the community of what happened, and they rejoiced. Apparently Sar Shalom had given verbal confirmation that Moshe would be appointed (as muqaddam) but had not yet provided a letter of installment. Moshe now asks the recipient to go to Abu 'Ali, who is to go to Sar Shalom and get the letter. Moshe is also worried about what Bu l-Khayr told him, namely that his brother Abu Ishaq has been beating the wife of his paternal uncle. Verso: The response, probably from Abu Sahl Levi to his son Moshe. He informs him that no one has been beating anyone, there are simply wicked people who try to cause trouble between husband and wife. He confirms that he will try to get hold of the letter of appointment. He concludes, "As for Ibn al-Taffal, may God sort him." ASE.

  • אלדי אעלמכם בה אני וצלת מן
  • פצל אללה תעאלי סאלם ואעלמת
  • אלגמאעה במא גרא ופרחו
  • כתיר ואלאן אן קדרתו תטלעו
  • לענד אבו עלי ותוצוה פי מציה
  • אלי ענד בו זכרי פי כתב
  • מנוי פי //מא// קד דכר בהא [[ען]]
  • פי כתאב אלגמאעה פיכון
  • תופיק ואשגל קלבי בו אלכיר
  • בכון אנה //קאל// אן אכי אבו אסחאק
  • געלת פד[אה] צארב בית עמי
  • פאתפצלו אעלמוני מא
  • תסמעו מן בו זכרי עני (?)
  • וכלוה יכתב לי מנוי במא
  • דכרתה פי כתאב אלגמאעה
  • ומהמא כאן ערפוני וערפוני
  • עלי איש צארב אכי אסחאק בית עמי
  • לא עדמת בקאכם ושלום
  • ואן קדרתו אן תעמלו שי עמא
  • יכתץ באהבה ביני ובינהם
  • פיכון תופיק ושלום
