TL;DR: In terms of narrative motifs, the tale of the king of I;Iimyar's adventures contained in the Mugmal attavarib overlaps with the later tale of Sind bad the seafaring merchant's fourth adventure to such an extent that as mentioned in this paper consider the former a precursor to the latter.
Abstract: Discussing a specific tale in context, the present essay is a contribution to the study of pre-modern Middle Eastern narrative culture. The tale under consideration is contained in the anonymous Mugmal at-tavarib va-'l-qe~a~ (Compendium of History and Tales), a historical work compiled in Persian early in the twelfth century. In terms of narrative motifs, the tale of the king of I;Iimyar's adventures contained in the Mugmal attavarib overlaps with the later tale of Sind bad the seafaring merchant's fourth adventure to such an extent as to consider the former a precursor to the latter.
