מכתב T-S Ar.37.12


Letter in Judaeo-Arabic. Addressed to Abū l-Najm Hillel [...] al-Jawbarī (or al-Gharbarī?). Mentions the following: Hiba b. Yūsuf Ibn al-Baghla ("Son of the Female Mule"—evidently a family name); the return of some people from Jerusalem; a debt of two dinars that someone is trying to collect from someone; Abū l-Khayr Bishrān b. Yishay b. Yisrael; a request for news about the pesiqa (collection of funds) of/for the Jerusalemites; a letter that arrived from Ibn Khashkhāsh ("Son of the Poppy") for Hiba, reporting that Ḥusayn collected a dinar from someone; and a derogatory statement about someone who said something that wasn't true. AA. ASE.
