Description

Note from an unidentified sender to Abū Manṣūr. In Arabic script. Dating: Likely 12th or 13th century. The sender reports that Abū ʿAlī b. Dāʾūd has demanded money from Hiba al-Ḍāfir. In turn, Hiba has sent a letter demanding money from the sender and from the funds which Ṣadaqa pays to the addressee; the addressee now has to pay 10 dirhams to Hiba. On verso there are accounts in Arabic script and Greek/Coptic numerals. These mention Hiba several times, so they are probably related to recto. Other names mentioned include: Mufaḍḍal; Manṣūr; Ibrāhīm. ASE
