List or table JRL SERIES C 83



Accounts in Judeo-Arabic related to the finances of Mordechai Bilobos and Yiṣḥaq Bilobos expressed in "פצה/silver". On the right side of the recto the list is titled "אל מטלוב למרדכי בילובוס מן חסאב אל גדיד" in which the key operative word is "matlūb". The latter may indicate that these are debts owed to or by Bilobos and before this "new calculation / חסאב אל גדיד" the top of the column mentions that the "his remainder from before / באקי לו מן קדים" was 12,213 fidda. When the heading on the right is read together with the one on the left "אל ואצל למרדכי" it does seem possible that the right portrays Bilobos' debts and the left are incoming payments to him. The paleography and the names of those involved help to estimate the dating of this fragment as 18th/19th-century. MCD.
