Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic in which the heading's recto includes the term "מאצריפ", which may indicate these are outstanding expenses related to the "deceased Nissim Mosseri" or "מרחום נסים מוצרי" (l.1-2r). In the heading the Hebrew term for "orphans/"יתומים" (l.1r) appears in connection with two or three names one of which is clearly "Mūsā/מוסה" (l.1r). The dating of this document is somewhat unclear because the Jewish-calendar month of Cheshvan is mentioned (l.2r) but the year appears to be Hijri as 1030AH or possibly 103AH (rougly 1621CE or 1691CE). The former year seems unlikely however because the monetary figures throughout this document are listed in Ottoman silver kuruş (see for example the "ق" symbol for قرش on line one of the verso) which were minted as early as 1690CE but did not reach wider circulation until 1703CE (Pamuk, A Monetary History of the Ottoman Empire, 160).
