Palimpsest. This parchment contained an Arabic legal document, which was scraped. The part on recto refers to [...] b. Yaḥyā al-ʿAfṣī (the gallnut merchant) and Abū Saʿīd the Jew. On the verso, at ninety degrees to the original text, a later hand wrote a table of names in Arabic script and Greek/Coptic numerals, with one entry in Hebrew script possibly reading Natan b. Yona. (Information in part from JRL Catalogue.)
