מכתב T-S 6J6.3



Letter from a certain Abū l-Faraj to someone titled Sayyidnā. In Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: Likely Mamluk-era (i.e., after ca. 1250) based on paleographic features, position of the tarjama (recto righthand margin), and use of the abbreviation אלממ[לוך]. The sender asks for financial help, including for paying his capitation tax (jāliya). On verso there are Hebrew writing exercises (haqeṣ ʿaṣel) and maybe two names in Arabic script, one of which is Ibn al-Qābila ('son of the midwife'). (Information in part from CUDL)
