Verso: Maimonides autograph. A list of contributors, probably related to collecting money for ransoming captives. Mentions names such as Barakāt b. Ṭayyib, Baqāʾ al-ʿAssār(?), Abū l-Munā al-Mustaʿmal, Makārim the partner of Baqāʾ, Abū l-Faḍl al-Mustaʿmal, Abū Manṣūr b. Nuṣayr, Abū Sahl b. Ayyūb, al-Ḥemdat, Sālim al-Bayyāʿ, Hiba al-Ṣabbāgh and his children. The list is written on the verso of a petition in Arabic script (see separate record) written by a woman who is asking for financial assistance, probably addressed to Maimonides. As he often did, Maimonides cut the letter for small strip and used the verso to write this list. The fragment was discovered by Amir Ashur, who is preparing it for publication. AA
