A Pahlavi Papyrus from Islamic Times.



In this article a complete letter in cursive Pahlavi script and in Middle Persian language is published for the first time. The letter, unfortunately known only from a photograph, contains some information of economic relations between Persia and Egypt in early Islamic times and is of great interest for the study of the culture of writing in the 7th and 8th centuries A.D.
