State document T-S Ar.39.54


Probably a draft for a letter or petition. In Arabic script. The two sides are in different hands, but each contains elaborate titles of important people (e.g., ʿImād al-Mulk, Jalāl al-[...] wa-Amīnuhā... Shujāʿ al-[...]). The Baker/Polliack catalog says that it may be dated 34?, but this does not seem to be correct. Needs further examination.
