Letter from a scholar and muqaddam (Aodeh identifies him as Avraham b. Ṣedaqa but does not explain why) to Abū Saʿīd Netanʾel b. Ṣedaqa the perfumer. Dating: early 12th century (per Goitein). Mainly in Arabic (in Arabic script), frequently interspersed with Hebrew (both in Arabic script and in Hebrew script). The sender writes to inform the addressee that he is resigning from his position, as he has not found it profitable. He asks to be put up in Fustat for two months, until he finds a permanent domicile. (Information from Goitein’s index card.) NB: this document is also known as p. Heid. Hebr. 913 = p. Heid. Arab. 834 = P.Heid.Arab. III 49 and has been edited both by Aodeh and by Diem; a partial transcription (lacking the Hebrew words) is available on the Arabic Papyrology Database.
