Abstract

Contrary to the commonly-held view, recently repeated by E. Fleischer ('A Fragment from Hiwi Al-Balkhi's Criticism of the Bible, Tarbiz 51 [1981], pp. 49—57), the author maintains that the appelation 'Al-Balkhi' most probably was applied outside Balkh, rather than in Balkh itself. The fragment published by Fleischer was discovered in the Genizah (and not in Balkh), and in all likelihood was written in Babylonia, the major center of Jewish culture at the time.
