Piyyut by Gamliel b. Moshe on the occasion of Avraham Maimonides's recovery from illness. Goitein: "As was customary at such banquets, poems in honor of the event were recited. We have one in the Geniza written on the occasion of the recovery of Abraham Maimonides from a grave illness (the Geniza contains several references to his poor health). The poem is jubilant, and praises, of course, also Abraham's illustrious late father, other ancestors, his two sons (who must have been mere boys at that time), and the happy community, for which he had been spared" Med Soc V, 111.
