Letter: T-S 13J35.5

Letter T-S 13J35.5



Letter of complaint. In Judaeo-Arabic, calligraphically written, with wide line-spacing. Against an adversary who denounced the sender to the government, gave false witness against him in qāḍī courts and told the Nagid Mevorakh that the sender alowed his cows to be grazed on Shabbat by Gentiles. Same scribe as T-S 13J34.5 (Alexandria, 1090 CE). (Information from Goitein's note card.) Same scribe likely also wrote T-S H10.171. Verso contains a seliḥa for the New Year (יי שמעה בקולי ראה), with alphabetic acrostic (information from CUDL).
