Letter T-S K25.231



Letter probably from Nissim b. Ḥalfon, in Tinnīs, to an unidentified addressee, probably in Fustat. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: mid-11th century. Almost completely unmentioned in the literature (the exception is Golb, "The Topography of the Jews of Medieval Egypt," p. 138). Identification of the sender is based on handwriting and typical content; cf. Gil, Kingdom of Ishmael, vol. 3, #585–#601. The letter is almost completely preserved; should be edited.
