Legal document in the hand of Ḥalfon b. Menashshe. Drawn up under the authority of the Nagid Moshe b. Mevorakh (ca. 1112–26 CE). It is a testimony that was delivered before the two permanent judges in Fustat who were appointed by the late Nagid Mevorakh b. Seʿadya and by his son Moshe (for similar examples, see Cohen, Jewish Self-Government, p. 275 note 13). Concerning what happened after the death of Abū l-Faḍl ʿAmram b. Raḥamim. The continuation is mostly missing. Mentions the blessed congregation of Fustat; a woman who paid a large sum out of her own money; the mother of Abū l-Faḍl who is a widow; and someone called al-Rayyis al-Jalīl.
