Accounts in Arabic script. Might be for a merchant, listing the sums of money received for goods such as sesame (5 dinars); 'the wheat of Damietta' (5 + 1/4 + 1/6 dinars and 52 dirhams); fava beans (180 dirhams). At the top of this page there is also an expenditure listed, related to a press (miʿṣara). On the other side, near the bottom, it mentions a sum of 300 dinars. It's possible that this is a state document rather than the accounts of an individual merchant. Needs further examination.
