Description

Family letter from Sāʾir b. Yosef al-Kharazī (the dealer in beads) to Khalfūn b. Rabʿūn. Carried by Yaʿqūb al-Andalusī. In Judaeo-Arabic. On parchment. Dating: 11th century. Per Goitein's index card, the sender asks the addressee to "come down" to Fustat after years of absence. But it is also possible that the sender is in Ifrīqiyya and he is just referring to someone who "went down to Egypt." (Information from Goitein's index card.) Needs further examination.
