State document T-S AS 181.9



Bifolio (subsequently folded into thirds) of an eclectic selection of incomplete state-related documents. Perhaps the writing exercises or drafting of a chancery scribe. There is fiscal accounting, part of a petition (dated [4]58 or [50]8 or [5]58), and an entry concerning a claim made from al-Ṣināʿa al-Maḥrūsa (the port of Fusṭāt). Mentions the payments in reference to "al-zakāt al-sāmī". Also mentions Jazīrat Banī Naṣr and al-Buḥayra. Needs examination.
