Letter to Peraḥya. In Judaeo-Arabic. Fragment. Dating: 1088–1188 CE (14[..] Seleucid). The letter discusses business in flax in the Levant, especially in Damascus. Mentions "the court of our master ʿEzra," perhaps a judge or a head of the Yeshiva in Damascus? Refers multiple times to the standard of Tyre for sums of gold coins. Needs examination
