Legal agreement. In Judaeo-Arabic. Damaged and torn. Dating: 1481 Seleucid, which is 1169/70 CE, as it mentions "the upcoming year which is 1482" (line 2). The parties are Abū Saʿd and Yefet (one of them is also called al-Ḥazzan). It may be dealing with a person who should have brought money (sums of 2 dinars and 30 dinars are mentioned) from the Rif to Fustat during the month of high holidays. (שהר אלמועדים). There is a clause stating that in a certain situation, a document (maybe this agreement itself) is no longer valid, including in Muslim courts. The parties seem to be agreeing on who can be where at what times of the year. One agrees not to come to Fustat during the high holidays; the other agrees not to enter Alexandria until the high holidays. AA. ASE.
