Beginning of a report to a Fatimid caliph. Dating: 11th or 12th century. Involving a woman. (Or perhaps this is a petition from a woman to an unidentified addressee, opening with blessings for the caliph.) On verso there are five lines of Judaeo-Arabic poetry (refers to love and then "if there is a poet among you, let him prophesy") and Coptic numerals. (Information in part from CUDL)
