Composition of the Šifāʿ, ca 411-18H/ca 1020-27

Avicenna's death, 428H/1037

V/XI c.

445H/1053 (29 Muḥarram/21 May) (before): [exemplar of ms. Tehran, Kitābḫānah-i Markazī-yi Dānišgāh-i Tihrān, 5231, apparently copied in VII-VIII/XIII-XIV c., with a possession note – probably pertaining to the exemplar – by Muḥammad Ibn ʿAbd Allāh al-Muġrī [?] al-Baġdādī, dated 29 Muḥarram 445H/27 May 1053]

468H/1076 (6 Ḏū l-Ḥiǧǧa/17 July), Nišābūr [?]: [date of copying of miI – probably pertaining to the exemplar – in ms. Rampur, Rampur Raza Library, 3477 ع (+ m, ṭ, r), apparently copied in XII/XVIII c. This date of copying is congruent with 17 Ḏū l-Ḥiǧǧa 468/28 July 1076 in Nišābūr, as date and place of copying of miiIV – probably pertaining to the exemplar – in ms. Kabul, Aršīf-i Millī Afġānistān, Afghan National Archive, 2295 (ex Private Library of King Zaher Shah 4926) (mutilous: mii.IV-ix, ṭ, ri-iv.III.3), apparently copied in X-XI/XVI-XVII c.]

This ms. reports also 18 Dey Māh (month of the Persian calendar) 469H as the end of copying of ii . These two dates of copying, with respect to the same two sections of the work, occur also in ms. Kabul, Aršīf-i Millī Afġānistān, Afghan National Archive, 2295 (ex Private Library of King Zaher Shah 4926) (mutilous: mii.IV-ix, ṭ, ri-iv.III.3), apparently copied in X-XI/XVI-XVII c, although ms. Kolkata and ms. Kabul accord differently the second date with the Arabic calendar ("Wednesday in the middle of Ǧumādà al-Ūlà", and "Monday of Ǧumādà al-Ūlà", respectively). The Kabul ms. transmits a series of dates in which the different parts of the exemplar were copied: the first of these dates is 17 Ḏū l-Ḥiǧǧa 468/28 July 1076, as the end of copying of miiIV; from which we know that the copying of the exemplar started the year before 469H – Several similar dates of copying in the Kabul ms. refer to Nišābūr as place of copying]
