Input date

In PGP since 2019


Recto (secondary use): Petition draft in Arabic script. The sender thanks the addressee for employing him in government service (khidma). Mentions "al-dawāwīn al-maʿmūra." Needs further examination. Verso (original use): Letter in Arabic script, in a chancery-esque hand. Opens with expressions of longing. The sender 'reports' that he continually asks after the addressee's news. Then mentions the victory (naṣr) or maybe aid (nuṣra) of al-Malik al-Manṣūr (a vizier?). Most of the continuation is lost. Needs further examination.
