Legal document. Very damaged. Location: Probably Cairo; only ''אל" is clearly legible of the location's name, but only three common locations begin with "al" (al-Qāhira, al-Maḥalla, and al-Mahdiyya), and the rest of the word is plausibly קאהרה. Dating: The date is lost, but Avraham ha-Rav ha-Gadol in line 3 has to be Avraham Maimonides, and Rabbenu Menaḥem is mentioned in line 12, a person known from other early 13th-century documents. (Menaḥem is introduced in line 7, where he is called Menaḥem ha-Rav ha-Gadol be-Yis[ra'el] Yeḥid ha-Dor, as in T-S 8J15.7.) Another person mentioned in this document: Yiṣḥaq ha-Sar ha-Nikhbad. Somebody attests that he received 25 dinars for something. Perhaps for a property sale, because a location is given in lines 11–12 (.... al-ākhar bi-darb qaḍīb). ASE
