Part of the research done in connection with Persian lexicography is based on the old bilingual dictionaries, especially those from Arabic to Persian. Therefore, the identifying of such dictionaries is an inevitable requirement for this research area.
In the present article, one of these dictionaries ــ included in the MajlisLibrary collection 6788 ــ has been studied. Since the beginning and ending gages of the known manuscript of this dictionary are missing we have no knowledge of its title and author. However, investigations indicate that this work cannot be one the well-known dictionaries. The presence in it of a few Turkish words and a number of lexical elements peculiar to the Transoxiana dialect shows that this dictionary must have been compiled in that region. Certain indications demonstrate that this work could not have been written before the 6th century AH/12th AD. Besides, its extant manuscript was copied in the 7th century AH. Thus we can place it more or less amongst the 6th-7th century/12th-13th AD books.
