Description

Letter of condolence from Natan b. Shemuel he-Ḥaver to a notable named Netanʾel, probably Abū l-Mufaḍḍal Netanʾel b. Peraḥya. (His kunya is written at 90 degrees, and his father's name along with the title Rosh ha-Nedivim may be found in several memorial lists from this period.) Dated: middle of Tammuz 1466 Seleucid = June 1155 CE. Fragment (top part only). It seems that the addressee's brother has died.
