מכתב T-S Ar.50.33



Letter. Possibly from Yaʿqūb b. Isḥāq to his mother (l. 3: "I ask God that He decree the good health of my mother"). But these identifications are tentative. Written in Judaeo-Arabic with the basmala in Arabic script. The entire letter, or at least what is not too faded to read, is an order for many types of materia medica. On verso there is literary text, including one segment on the laws of sale and another on the laws of carrying.
