<p style='text-align: justify;'>Part of a late 11th-century letter, from a group of Byzantine Jewish captives being held for ransom in Egypt (probably Alexandria), to Judah ha-Nagid b. Saʿadya, requesting urgent help with payment of their ransom. Pirates, who had captured them at sea, had originally sold them to slave traders, but were forced to take them back as the sale was illegal, thus placing them in a precarious situation. </p>
