Description

Recto: Bottom of a letter in Judaeo-Arabic. The sender asks how the capitation tax (al-jāliya) promises to be this coming year. The sender seems to be worried about traveling to the addressee's location (apparently Jerusalem) before he knows. He asks what travelers have been saying about conditions on the return journey to Jerusalem, and also how things are in Jerusalem. Verso: accounts in different handwriting, in Judaeo-Arabic and Greek/Coptic numerals. (Information from CUDL)
