Letter: T-S NS J323

Letter T-S NS J323



Recto: The last few lines of an Arabic letter. Needs further examination. Verso: The lower part of a letter of appeal signed by the cantor Yedutun ha-Levi who had fallen on hard times and needs money to support and feed himself. He also alludes to the pains of an illness. The upper half probably had a poem in praise of the recipient, a Levi. In the margin, the writer's name is spelled out in more detail: Abū l-Ḥasan b. Abū Sahl the cantor of the Palestinian synagogue, may it last forever. ASE.
