State document ENA NS 55.20


Official correspondence in Arabic script. Opening of the letter, starting with an ʿalāma (al-ḥamdu lillāhi kathīra?) in a thick pen. In the position of the tarjama it seems to read, "Our brother the qāʾid Abū Muḥammad [...] b. Yūsuf." The tarjama is followed by a basmala and the beginning of the correspondence ([Kitābī] aṭāl-Allahu baqāka wa adāma). On verso a liturgical or biblical text (parashat sheqalim?).
