Description

Letter fragment in Judaeo-Arabic. The hand appears to be that of the India trader Makhlūf b. Mūsā (cf. T-S 8.69 (PGPID 9265)). Possibly a draft, as the text abruptly breaks off on verso. He reports that the addressee's letter; mentions 90 dinars and a sale; and how he prayed for the addressee and his son. On verso mentions 'the Jews' and 'the law' in the context of a shipment and a payment; and the arrival of seven mats (antāʿ) for Abū l-Faḍāʾil.
