A folio from a Judaeo-Arabic epistle/treatise on Hebrew grammar, listing the Masoretic pedigree of Aharon b. Moshe b. Asher, also mentioning R. Moshe Moheh and Moshe ha-'Azzati ha-Naqdan, and then going into a discussion of rules of sheva and dagesh. The exact same text (though not from this manuscript) appears as an appendix in several editions of Diḳduḳe ha-ṭeʻamim easily found on Google Books, but the author does not appear to be known (one Russian edition from 1886 speculates Dunash b. Tamim ha-Bavli). ASE.
