Letter T-S 12.833

Description

Panegyric poem in Hebrew, written in two columns. This is probably the header of a letter of which only two words are preserved in the bottom line. The identities of the addressees (a pair of brothers?) may be identifiable from the poem; the phrases "sons of Moshe" and Abū l-Bishr" appear in it. The letter may be an appeal for charity or other assistance, based on how the poem emphasizes the charitable qualities of the addressees.
