מכתב T-S Ar.39.48


Letter from a certain Ibrāhīm (verso, l. 1). In Arabic script. Fragmentary (only the upper right corner is preserved). Mentions another Ibrāhīm (recto, l. 6) and discusses various business transactions. In the upper margin, mentions either a power of attorney or inn (wikāla), probably the former, since the next line mentions "the sign of the owner is on it in the name of the agent" (wa-ʿalāmat al-mālik ʿalyayhi bism al-wakīl). (The term "mālik" could also be short for mālik al-riqq, referring to the addressee.)
