State document AIU IV.A.211



First eight lines of a letter addressed to a dignitary ("mawlāya ʾadāma llāh ʿizzah fi ʾamrihi wa-masʾalat mukātabat"), in a chancery-trained hand. Possibly dealing with trade. Mentions a letter that arrived from "his colleagues in the Egyptian city of Ṭalḥā" (l. 4). Reused for piyyuṭ on verso by the same Jewish scribe who reused T-S Misc.29.13 (and probably many others).
