In PGP since 2017


Culinary or medical recipe. In Arabic script, Kūfī, seven lines. On parchment. Dating: "Particularly old" per Goitein; likely 10th century or earlier. This was probably torn from a page that originally had more recipes, as the tops of the letters from the next entry are just barely visible. Needs further examination. (Information from Goitein’s index card)
