Maqamat Badi' al-Zaman al-Hamadhani

Maqamat Badi' al-Zaman al-Hamadhani, (Arabic مقامات بديع الزمان الهمذاني), an Arabic[1] collection from the 9th century of 400 episodic stories, roughly 52 of which have survived. A century later, these maqamat inspired the maqamat of Al-Hariri of Basra, which in turn inspired the Hebrew Tahkemoni.
