Accounts in Arabic with a complex array of calculations likely monetary in nature, with the symbol "ق" on occasion perhaps indicating silver kuruş (which may have been minted as early as 1690 but did not reach wider circulation until 1703). The potential coinage label along with the paleography help estimate the dating of the fragment as 18th/19th-century. This fragment represents a portion of a bifolium which may have once constituted a wider financial ledger. One of the entries on the verso is labeled "اسكندراني" and the overarching headings are marked according to weekdays. MCD.
