Legal document BL OR 10118.6



Late proclamation, on vellum, ornate, in flowery Hebrew, with remnants of a black and red illumination at the top of the page. It opens with an essay about how the ancestors bequeathed the legacy of dividing the community into three "mishmarot" and appointing leaders. A few lines above the large "Sason," it describes the noble and brave Shelomo Dammūhi and declares that he will be appointed the head of "our mishmeret," the third one, for the next three years, starting now in the month of Kislev, and all will obey him. 10 lines also survive on verso which are more difficult to decipher.
