A Greek-Aramaic-Middle Persian text from the Cairo Geniza

BIBLIOGRAPHIA IRANICA: Trilingual Greek-Aramaic-Middle Persian Pharmaceutical Lexical List. This is a very early (9th-10th century) text from the Cairo Geniza. It is published in an article by Christa Müller-Kessler in the journal Le Muséon. It looks as though you need a paid subscription to access the whole article. I can't tell for sure, because I have a subscription automatically through the University of St. Andrews.
