Letter: AIU VII.E.2

Letter AIU VII.E.2



Fragment (upper part) of a Judaeo-Arabic letter to Avraham Maimonides from al-Muhadhdhab ha-Kohen b. Manṣūr (or Merayot?) ha-Kohen. From the body of the message that remains, al-Muhadhdhab describes his distress on account of the tax (אלמס) he owes. On verso there is also a piece of a letter (a postscript?) with blessings for Eliyya ha-Sar; the address "to be delivered to Eliyya ha-Dayyan" is also preserved, broken into two pieces from how the paper was glued and torn open.
