Commercial list in two or three different hands in Judaeo-Arabic and Arabic script. On verso there is a list of commodities sent with Abū l-Ḥasan b. Khulayf. This person was a close companion of Ḥalfon b. Netanʾel ha-Levi and traveled constantly between Alexandria, Fustat, and Qalyūb. Recto, right page: the Arabic-script entry involves a basket of arsenic (quffa zarnīkh) weighing 107 raṭls. This is crossed out. Recto, left page: Arabic-script entry only, headed, "bi-rasm Abū l-Ḥasan b. Khulayf...." Dated: Tuesday, 9 Shaʿbān 514 AH = 3 November 1120 CE. "Two bales of pepper: the price: 110 dinars . . ." Verso, right page: Judaeo-Arabic entry, also for Abū l-Ḥasan b. Khulayf, dated: Wednesday, 10 Kislev (i.e., the day after the 9 Shaʿbān Arabic entry from recto). Mentions a purse containing 72 dinars whose weight is 70 + 1/2 + 1/3. Inside the purse there is another purse with 15 dinars whose weight is 14.5. Altogether there are 88 dinars (this seems off by 1). On three of the four pages, there are later accounts in a different hand, in Judaeo-Arabic. AA. ASE.
