Description

List of alphanumerical "expenses / מצרופ" where the Ottoman silver "guruş / גרוש" may be in use but is also possible that "גרוש" is a shorthand for European silver coins. The "guruş/kuruş" was minted in the Ottoman empire perhaps as early as 1690CE but did not reach wider circulation until 1703CE (Pamuk, A Monetary History of the Ottoman Empire, 160). The paleography of this document suggests that the document is older, however, so a safe dating estimate would be 1500-1800 CE. MCD.
