Description

Legal document in Arabic script. Fragment (upper left corner). Seems to be an acknowledgment by the Rabbanite Jew named [ʿUmar?] b. Ibrāhīm known as Shams al-Dawla(?) in which he undertakes to pay support to a Rabbanite Jewish woman (presumably his wife or divorcee). Mentions paying daily a sum of silver (fiḍḍa) and providing food (ṭaʿām) and possibly water (?? inṣāf mā, but this could also say ayḍan fa-mā). Mentions children in the last line.
