Letter T-S 12.214



Recto: Letter opening to Joseph the Nagid (יהוסף, probably the Nagid Joseph b. Samuel, from the second half of the 11th century CE). Only extensive opening greetings are preserved. Verso: Commentary in Judeao-Arabic on Psalms. The text on verso is in a different hand and much less neatly written. Information from 2018 Genizah Research Unit catalog. The text on verso appears to be instructions for when to invoke certain Psalms for various needs: against an enemy (Psalm 2), for example, or for a headache. ASE.
