Description

Petition from a Jewish man to a dignitary. In Arabic script. Fragment (upper left corner). Opens with two lines of grand titles for the presumably Muslim addressee (Zakhīrat al-Dīn Jamāl al-Ruʾasāʾ, Ṣabī Amīr al-Muʾminīn). The petitioner is presumably a tax farmer or is harrased by one. There is a single word in Hebrew in the upper margin. On verso, there may also be remnants of an endorsement (in Arabic script). Needs further examination. On verso, several lines of rhymed Hebrew (including one line against gentiles).
