The paper aims at analyzing the contents of some Arabic letters, written and
received by S. Assemani, preserved in the library of the Museo Correr in Venice. Assemani's correspondence in Arabic is a rich source for various domains.
This contribution focuses on a choice of documents in which mention is made
of seals and ancient scripts. Through these selected letters it was possible to
address the theme of the reuse and perception of Arabic artefacts, particularly
inscribed gems, in Europe.
