Description

Letter fragment in Arabic script. Parts of five lines are preserved along with some of the margin and some mirror-text imprinted by the lines that used to be below. The addressee is told to send his next letter to Tyre or to Damascus (ilā Ṣūr aw ilā Dimashq, l. 2). Mentions Jerusalem (al-Quds) at the end of l. 3, then a quire of Damascene paper (kurrās waraq Dimashqī). Needs further examination. On verso there is a Talmudic discussion of usury.
