Letter T-S 6J10.2



Letter from Abū Zikrī b. Ḥananel to Abū l-Afrāḥ ʿArūs b. Yosef al-Arajawānī. In Judaeo-Arabic, with the address partially in Arabic script. Concerning business matters, and mentioning commodities such as sal ammoniac (nushādir) and purple fabric (arjawān). Refers to a ship that is apparently not traveling—not to al-Mahdiyya and not to al-Andalus. A qāḍī is sick, and the traders cannot trade. (Information in part from CUDL and Goitein's index card.)
