Page 6 The Events of the Year 280 (March 23, 893 - March 12, 894) One of the events was al-Mu`tadid's seizure of `Abdallah b.  A pharmacist and a nephew of Shaylamah from al-Madinah were seized with him.  39.  Sahl [d.  Sahl died in the early summer of 235 (850). For Shaylamah at al-Muwaffaq's court, see Abu Hayyan al-Tawhidi, Basa'ir, ed.  No information is available on the phar- macist and Shaylamah's nephew.  Pellat, V, 148; Ibn al-Nadim, Fihrist, 127, Shaylamah wrote a biography of the Zanj leader.

This is not correct. Ms. R continues through the year 302. I have no explanation for the statement in the catalogue. Among the historians who wrote during the first century after Tabari's death, `Arib used the History faithfully to the year 299, 6 See Rosenthal, Muslim Historiography2, 82. 7 As stated in the beginning of Ms. Topkapisarayi Ahmet III 2929/1. 24 f. 9 See Ibn al-Athir, Kamil, ed. Tornberg, VIII, 68. , translated in Rosenthal, Muslim Historiography2, 81-3. , on the addition concerning the death of al-Hallaj.

Beginning with the caliphate of al-Muqtadir, the number of widely available, relevant historical sources greatly increased, as was noted already by Mas`uidi3. The publication history of Tabari's work is significant for understanding the section translated here. Until the year 294(906-7), the author lectured on the material that ultimately became the sections on Umayyad and `Abbasid history. 4 Further data available to us are essentially as follows: According to al-Farghani [b. 282(895-6), d. 362(972-3], Tabari's work ended with the year 302.
