Description

A fragment from what seems to be a letter of appeal(?) in very nice, square Hebrew characters addressed to the dear elder (הזקן היקר). The text is fragmentary. Discusses delivery of wheat to Egypt. The carrier of the letter is regarded as 'one of those who give, not take (והיה מן הנותנים לא מן הלוקחים)- usually found in letters of appeal for community assistance. Also a reference to the Christians - ערלים, but the text is missing here.
