Chapter Summary

ʿIrāq al-Manshiyyah was a village 10km west of Bayt Jubrīn. To the north of the village there is a high and steep tell called ʿAl-Areinī after a local saint, Shaykh Aḥmad al-ʿArīnī whose ruined shrine is situated on the top of the tell. A slab of limestone, embedded in the northern wall of the maqām to the left of the entrance door. Lines, professional, provincial Mamlūk naskhī points, signs and ornaments in open spaces between the letters; in relief. The stone could not have been brought from the nearby village since ʿIrāq al-Manshiyyah had no khān in spite of the fact that it sat on a favourable spot on the main travel and postal route from Egypt through Gaza to the Syrian territories, connecting Gaza directly with Karak through Bayt Jubrīn and Hebron.
