Description

Legal document, unfinished. Dissolution of a partnership. Dated: Location: Fustat. Dated: first decade of Shevaṭ 1463 Seleucid, which is January 1152 CE, under the authority of the Nagid Shemuel b. Ḥananya. "Hiba al-Abzārī b. Abū Isḥaq al-Tawwazī and Abū l-Faḍāʾil Yaʿqūb al-Raffāʾ release one another from a partnership, leaving Hiba owing Abū l-Faḍāʾil six dinars (ll.11–12), to be repaid according to a schedule (ll.16–18). The separation of the partners also leaves the two partners returning what seems to be a debt to their investor Abū l-Ḥasan Ibn al-ʿUrs; Hiba is to pay between sixty and seventy dinars (ll.19–20) and Abū l-Faḍāʾil is to pay thirteen dinars (l.21). It is interesting that each of the partners is left with a separate debt to Abū l-Ḥasan, distinct from the assets of his partner (l.22); thus, following the separation, the parties are no longer jointly liable even for debts which were accrued during the life of the partnership."
