מכתב BL OR 5566B.34



Letter from a certain Yehuda to Yosef b. Yaʿaqov ha-Kohen. In Judaeo-Arabic. Highly calligraphic. The letter concerns people who were captured in Palermo and also some issues of inheritance. Mentions "the Byzantines—a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand" (a reference to Deut. 28:49). (Information from Goitein’s index card.) Almost completely unmentioned in the literature (at least according to the FGP bibliography); should be edited.
