Recto: Account of the qodesh. Dating: ca. 1119–20 CE. Accounting written on the verso of a letter addressed to Judge Avraham b. Natan. The accounting is obviously a draft, since revenue from rent and expenditures, mainly payments to officials, are mingled indiscriminately. (Information from Gil, Documents, pp. 240 #42). A previous PGP description listed this fragment as containing a "Responsum of the Gaon Shelomo b. Yehuda," but this appears to be erroneous. Recto also contains a letter draft in the hand of Avraham b. Natan, reporting that he sent what was bestowed upon him. Mentions several names: Tiqva; Shibl; [...] b. Abū Naṣr [...]; Ibn al-Abzāriyya; Ibn al-Qābila; Sālim; [...] ha-Kohen b. Yaʿīsh ha-Kohen; Abū Yaʿaqov; Ibn Nufayʿ; Saʿadya ha-Kohen.
