    Abstract:
    On January 18, 1963, the UCLA excavation uncovered a letter written in Old Nubian. At its present state it preserves the entire height and most probably the entire width. The publication of the letter was entrusted to Sergio Donadoni, but remained in draft form, like the rest of the publication on Askut prepared by Alexander Badawy. Together with the rest of the Askut material, the letter was kept at the University of California Los Angeles. In 2015, Stuart Tyson Smith from UC Santa Barbara, who took over care of the Askut material, entrusted the publication to the present authors. The following is an independent attempt to decipher this previously unknown Old Nubian letter, although Donadoni’s notes have been consulted.
