Legal document. Partnership agreement. Dating: no earlier than 1415 CE, based on the currency niṣf fiḍḍa (medin). The partners are Riḍā b. ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz b. Riḍā and Yeshuʿa Dukhān (Dakhkhān? Dakkān?), in the manufacture and sale of cheese and other dairy products, for an unspecified fixed period. Each partner contributes both labor and capital: Riḍā is to be responsible for manufacture in the cheesemaking courtyard, bringing fifty qintār of halloumi cheese to the partnership. Yeshuʿa is to be responsible for sales, remaining in the shop and investing 1,000 silver half-dirhams, to be brought by Yeshuʿa in payments according to a schedule (see lines 10-12). Riḍā is to keep accounts. Profits and losses are to be divided equally, including rent for both the shop and the courtyard. Line 13 refers to the trustworthiness of the partners, important in this case since the two partners will not be working side by side. (Information in part from Lieberman, "A Partnership Culture," 188.) Join: Oded Zinger.
