Description

State document, Fatimid, probably a decree fragment, 4 lines. Begins with وعاد بنجابتهما وحسن in a dual tense suggesting that it was addressed to two officials. The second line is crossed out and seems like a pen-trial of the first line. The third line mentions appointment in a position for someone (caliph?); wa lahu mutnaṣṣibīn, and the expectation that the appointees will strive for the duty; wa fīhi mujiddīn, and ascertain something; wa-li-yataḥaqqa. The last line mentions their accountability to the task assigned; masʾūlān ʿanhā muṭālibīn.
