Description

Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic. Concerning primarily the trade in pepper (filfil). Dating: Perhaps 12th or 13th century. Each page is crossed out with a vertical line. It seems the pepper was processed in Fustat (expenses are listed for gharbala/sieving and packing in khaysh/canvas), then sent to Rashīd and thence to Alexandria for export. Traders mentioned include Ibn ʿImmanuel and Maymūn. A sum of ~184 dinars is cited at the end; it seems that Maymūn is responsible for ~30 dinars of that. MCD. ASE.
