Verso: Receipt. In Arabic script. For Ibn Mazhar the Jew. The scribe's name appears at the bottom: Abū l-Majd b. ʿAlī. Dated: Either 506 or 560 AH, which means either 1112/13 or 1164/65 CE. The payment was 4.5 (dinars?) cash, which is written both in words and in Greek/Coptic numerals. The payment seems to be for the ground rent (ḥikr) for a property ( alladhī fī sūq al-kabīr).
