The nature of the text is unclear- very dark and hard to read. Few names on Verso such as Ishaq b. Barukh,. Sevilla is mentioned. Seems to be written by Abu Nasr b. al-Tabib (see TS 8J15.13 where he signed on top). He was active during Maimonides' time: in TS 16.229 he mentions him in the blessing for the living. He copied dozens of halakhic treatises, Geonic responsa and other collections of responsa such as those by R. Yosef Migash (see Ashur, ‘Responsa of Rabbi Joseph Ibn Migash from the Cairo Geniza’, Qovets-Al-Yad 21 [31], pp. 1˗24, 2012 [Hebrew]). AA
