Letter from Ibrāhīm b. Ṣadaqa the perfumer, in Ashqelon, to Abū Saʿīd Netanʾel b. Ṣadaqa the perfumer, in Fustat. Dating: Ca. 1116 CE. Written in Hebrew, in a strange flowery script. The addressee is asked to hand over to Tiqva b. Aharon ha-Ashqeloni 5 [dinars?] of the money belonging to his wife Wuḥūsh which is deposited with the addressee. Same writer and addressee as T-S 13J13.3 (PGPID 946), which is dated Elul 1457 Seleucid (1116 CE). The content is also very similar, except that in T-S 13J13.3, the addressee is supposed to hand over 5 dinars to the writer's relative Abū l-Ḥasan Rajā. (Information from Goitein's note card.)
