List or table JRL SERIES C 52



Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic that feature a wide array of price-related calculation that may date from the late 17th or early 19th centuries based on the paleography. The recto is very faded yet on the verso the entry structure of the bifolium is more clear in that each set of calculations is designated by individuals, such as: Ḥayyim Tawīl, Yosef Mod[aʿ]?, and Maʿallam Saʿad. Some of the entries where prices are mentioned also reference types of coinage. On the upper right of the verso, line 2, the word "בונדוק / bunduk" appears which is in all likelihood a quantity of gold Venetian ducats. In the same column below that, the term "מתקיל / metqil" appears and elsewhere on the verso as another form of coinage. The word Istanbulī is also used in various accounts but its exact numismatic meaning is unclear. Based on the structure of this bifolium and the small tears along the inner spine, it may originate from a broader private ledger. MCD.
