List or table JRL SERIES C 97



Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic of a wide array of purchases in the year [12]55AH which can be inferred by the usage of the Hijri months Sha'ban on the recto and [Dhu] al-Qa'da on the verso (which is 1839CE). The names of many involved in the purchases are listed such as: Ḥajj Aḥmed Silāmi, Ḥasan Aḥmed Minshāwi, Ḥasan Kerker[?] Bāsha, Mūsā Berakāt, and on the verso: Mikhail Bogros[?] and Ibrāhīm Borketli[?]. In the verso's thrid entry on the right there is mention of the Ottoman Turkish term "ruznama" or "ruznāme / רוזנאמה" which may be a register of daily financial transactions or, less likely, a calendar specifically for Hijri time-keeping.
