[Orient, 11th century-12th century?]
1 fol. : torn, losses from the lower end.
Paper 15.2 X 14.6 cm material applied: black ink ruling method: columns: 1 lines: 2 (recto) 13 extant (verso).
Jewish religious poetry, Hebrew.
Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic. Hebrew Oriental semi-square.
In the first poem each verse starts a new line, but this structure is neglected in the second; verse endings denoted by a punctus.
The first folio of the booklet, the recto is the title page, includes only the title: פרשת אחרי מות תקאל\ לפרחיה הכהן בר טרפון נ״ע (the second line is in a different hand than the first).
The verso starts the Matsdar ויהי כל פועל בזרוע רמה. Seven verses, monorhymed רון-, that form the acrostic signature פרחיה.
Heading: אחר ליוסף. Joseph Albaradani’s Matsdar יהי אור אמר ראשון ואחרון. Published from other ms. sources, by T. Beeri, ha-Ḥazan ha-gadol asher be-Vagda / Tova Beeri [ed.]. Jerusalem : Makhon Ben-Tsevi, 2002, p. 229.
See Mann, The Jews of Egypt, 1922, vol. II p. 169, a similar Matsdar booklet in which our Peraḥyah appears on the title page as the owner or copyist. He also appears in Cambridge TS 24.74, a document dated 1104 in Fustat, and signed on another, Cambridge TS 8J 11.15, of the court of Matsliaḥ ha-Kohen Gaon (1127-1139). The signature there is identical to ours here, so Peraḥyah may also be the copyist or owner of this booklet.
