Letter T-S Ar.39.490



Letter addressed to Abū l-Mufaḍḍal, in Alexandria. Fragment (left side of recto). In Arabic script, in an eloquent style. Dating: Likely 12th or 13th century. Most of what is preserved consists of flattery and blessings. The sender says that he sent something with Abū l-Faraj, and he seems to be reporting on his attempts to carry out errands for the addressee. Verso contains the end of the letter and the address.
