Receipt of some kind. The sum named is 1/2 dinar. Dated: Possibly 13 Ramaḍān 490 AH, but this should be checked. The payment seems to have been owed and paid by the tax farmer (ḍāmin) for the revenue from a waterwheel (sāqiya) which broke and had to be replaced (taḥwīl). There is probably at least one place name given. Four names are mentioned: Ḥusayn al-Khamīrī, ʿAbd al-Ḥamīd al-Najjār (the carpenter who repaired the waterwheel?), the qāḍī [...] Ḥamīd b. Aḥmad b. Muḥammad b. Abī ʿAbdallāh, and the tax farmer himself ʿAbdallāh b. Ibrāhīm. On verso there are accounts. Needs further examination.
