Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic on a bifolium in which the name Yaʿacov Ventura is mentioned at least three times across the recto and verso. Based on the paleography the dating may be 17th-18th-century. The figures are expressed alphanumerically and the clearest heading on the recto states "ועלם אלדי אנצרפ פי אל שהר / notice of that which was expended this month". The expenses which appear below this specific heading are diverse, with mention of "דגאג / chicken", yet may ultimately point to the communal nature of these accounts with mention of the posts of "חזנים / hazzanim" and the beadles "סלמון שמש" and "אלכהן שמש". Date: 17th c or 18th c. MCD.
