Letter from Akhlābū b. Aharon ha-Kohen, in Alexandria, to Yosef b. Eli Kohen Fasi, in Fustat. Around 1051. The writer charged 10 dinars and wrote their details. Wahb b. Sulaymān al-Mawṣilī returned to Upper Egypt, with sorrow, because of the riots (it is not clear what he means). The writer asks to know the prices of pepper and flax in the commercial center in Fustat (“Kaluz”). (Information from Gil, Kingdom, Vol. 4, #703) VMR
