Abstract:The paper presents the preliminary results of a palaeographic and etymological analysis of the first sheet of the al-Malik al-Afdal's 14th-century Arabic-Ethiopic Glossary, undertaken by a team of Russian scholars as part of a framework project for the edition and publication of the whole Glossary. The results are compared with the identifications offered recently by Franz-Christoph Muth. For the 34 entries from the first sheet of the Glossary, whose identification in Muth's publication is either missing altogether or not sufficiently convincing, new identifications are offered and discussed.
