List or table JRL SERIES C 159



Accounts in Judaeo-Arabic of expenses and purchases for various liturgical calendar weeks (i.e. the week of Kedoshim parsha) and the food items for a Passover seder are also listed. The itemized accounts are extremely well-detailed: i.e. soap, lemon, rice, wax, beans, taḥīna, among many other entries. While the bifolium itself is undated it may come from a broader notebook which could contain a date. From the paleography and layout the dating can be estimated as 18th/19th-century. The expenses are listed in silver "פצה" (medin). MCD.
