Recto: Fragment of a letter in Judaeo-Arabic. Legible phrases: "... worse than... a terrible danger... in other news... R. Natan... to Fustat with a letter... the [Exi]larch.... Verso: Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic, possibly in a neater version of the same handwriting. On this side, the alephs at least look like those of Yosef b. Shemuel b. Seʿadya ha-Levi (ca. 1181–1209). Might be communal accounts for revenue from rentals (e.g., al-ṭabaqa) for Sivan and Tammuz. Mentions names such as Umm Baqāʾ and Murajjā. (Information in part from CUDL)
