Legal document in the hand of Moshe b. Levi ha-Levi. Small fragment (upper left corner). Location: New Cairo. Dating: No later than 1195 CE, as it was written under the authority of the Gaʾon Sar Shalom ha-Levi. The document concerns Yūsuf al-Ḍarīr ("the blind"). On the scribe, see A. Elbaum, "Assembling a Life: Several Dozen New Fragments on Moshe b. Levi ha-Levi" (FOTM April 2020). Several documents indicate that although Moshe lived in Qalyūb, he regularly came into Cairo for work (e.g., as a scribe) and to Fustat to see his wife and father and brother. AA. ASE.
