Mysterious fragment mainly in Judaeo-Arabic, with some Arabic script. Dating: Late, probably no earlier than 16th century. Recto might be a collection of pen trials (tajrīb al-qalam ʿalā al-qirṭāsila(!)) and aphorisms. At the lower left there is a quotation from Galen about asking dead people (ahl al-maqābir) how they died. The first two lines of verso might be a medical prescription.
