Letter T-S Ar.39.254



Letter fragment. Mainly in Arabic script, with one word in Hebrew script. May mention Bilbays. Refers to "the knowledge of medicine" and perhaps a youth who is both physician and astrologer (shābb ṭabīb munajjim). The sender orders acacia (aqāqiya) and mentions condensed walnut juice (rubb al-jawz) and the pressing of something. (Information in part from CUDL.)
