Description

Recto: Petition, fragment. Perhaps involving the plunder and occupation of a house (....al-bayt wa-nahabū... ikhrājuhum ʿanhu... fa-mā li-l-mamlūk illā marāḥim al-mawlā...). The form of the ra'y clause that appears here (wa-l-ra'y aʿlā) is typical of Ayyubid-era petitions. Mentioned several times in Geoffrey Khan's work (Khan, Historical Dev, 21; JRAS 52; ALAD, 315 n43, 373, 396). AA. ASE.
