Fatimid decree, probably. Only a single phrase is preserved: ʿAlī b. Abī Ṭālib. A piece of another letter from the line above is also preserved. The decree was cut up and converted into a bifolio. The secondary use is a literary text in Arabic script, at least partially about wars and kings. E.g., one phrase read at random: والتقى الجمعان في معترك نزال(؟), which is an allusion to Quran 3:155, 166. This fragment may be related to T-S Ar.41.139.
