Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic and eastern Arabic numerals on verso with occasional notes indicating that specific quantities are in different types of coinage. For example, the silver kuruş ("גרש") is attached to certain figures and others bear the designation of "תקיל/ثقيل" indicating coinage of a weight higher than current standards– which helps date this fragment to no earlier than 1690 CE when the earliest variants of the Ottoman kuruş may have been produced (Pamuk, A Monetary History of the Ottoman Empire, 160). MCD. Dating: 18th or 19th century. There is also a midrash on Psalms 135:6 on the recto.
