Recto: One of Shelomo b. Eliyyahu's many small notes in which he orders small quantities of materia medica to be given to the bearer. In this one he orders from Abū l-Munā Shammān a half-ratl of a syrup of apple and rose preserves and a quarter-ratl of quince rob in a clay vessel for the price of (or an eighth of?) 1 dirham. "Because I am at the baḥr (Nile?)." Verso: A list, mostly in Arabic but with one word in Hebrew characters. Perhaps related to recto, since the second word appears to be سفرجل.
