Draft of a legal document. In Judaeo-Arabic. Location: Fustat. Dated: 1507 Seleucid = 1195/96 CE. In the handwriting of Moshe b. Levi ha-Levi. Involves Abū l-Fakhr and Khalaf b. Hillel. Possibly a partnership agreement. A sum of 22 dinars is mentioned; a period of two years; and the dower (mahr) of "his daughter" Sitt al-ʿIzz. The document is very faded, but more should be legible with effort. Verso seems to be a continuation of recto, and also mentions a mu'akhkhar (delayed marriage payment) perhaps of 50 dinars. ASE.
