Letter T-S Ar.42.208


Letter from a father to his son. In Arabic script. The father's name appears in the right margin: looks something like كىى بن للسول. He had heard that his son was in Aswan but was very agitated when he came to Aswan and did not find his son there. As soon as the son receives this letter, he should come together with his brother. Mentions something the wife of Ibrāhīm has said (or "if she says..."). The father gives further instructions. On verso there are a few lines of accounts in Judaeo-Arabic and Greek/Coptic numerals.
