Verso (original use): Official correspondence in Arabic script. Fragment (beginning). The sender is probably Ibrāhīm b. Muḥammad. He begins (instead of the usual honorifics and blessings) by justifying the fact that he has not come in person or written prior. Between the lines of recto, and verso: Treatise on the ‘people of the land’, with numerous biblical quotations on the wise, the fool, the ʿAm ha-Areṣ, and offerings, as well as quotations from the Talmud.
