מכתב T-S NS 264.80



Recto: Informal note in Judaeo-Arabic asking Bū l-Ḥasan to purchase 2.5 raṭls of pepper, 1 raṭl of almonds, and 1 raṭl of "bustaj lubbān ṣāliḥ" = good-quality olibanum incense(?). Ṣāfī will do something with the almond oil and the myrtle (marsīn). Dating: Probably late 12th or early 13th century. Might be related to the family of Abū l-Ḥasan Yedutun ha-Levi (who often dealt in small quantities of materia medica and had a factotum named Ṣāfī), but the handwriting still needs to be identified.
