Letter T-S AS 151.149


Recto (secondary use): Note addressed to Abū l-Majd. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: Likely early 13th century. The sender has carried out Abū l-Majd's instruction and sent with the bearer 6.5 dirhams of "muʿaffaṣ" (something dyed with galls) and 1 dirham of "qirmiz" (crimson) and 1/4 dirham of white. Ibn Ruzayq has not yet traveled; he was with the sender. The children send their regards. There is a ḥamdala in Arabic script in the right margin (might belong with the separate document on verso, but might also belong with this note).
