List or table T-S Ar.39.63


Bifolio from a ledger of business accounts. In Arabic script. Dating: Several years are specified, but they are difficult to read; perhaps 493–95 AH, which would be 1099–1102 CE. Entries are separated by horizontal lines and some phrases are crossed out by a thick pen. Many details are given about transactions and names of other merchants (e.g., al-Shaykh Manṣūr and Ibrāhīm b. [...] al-Maghribī). One of the commodities mentioned is myrobalan (halīlaj). Merits further examination.
