List or table T-S Ar.54.59



Fragment (lower part) in the same hand [Shelomo b.Eliyyahu's] as T-S K15.74; T-S K15.88; T-S NS J256. List of cash receipts, arranged according to days and indicating which official collected the sums and to whom they were delivered. In several cases, orders of payment, referred to here as hawala, literally, transfer of debt, were given. Some items are noted as 'balance of his vow,' or 'part of what he owes.' Only the column 'Tuesday,' headed by the Nagid who gives 10 dirhams (next highest payment: 5), is completely preserved (9 contributions). Besides a hawala of 5, there were 34 dirhams in cash, of which 25 were delivered to the parnas Baqa, while the writer retained 9. The total of one collection, presumably for a week, was 162 dirhams, for which a collector's fee of 6 dirhams was charged, while three other persons, two parnasim and a beadle, brought 45 plus 19 dirham plus 1 dinar and 45 plus 10 1/2 [? not visible on microfilm]. Total 119 1/2 dirhams plus 1 dinar; also a sum of approximately 160 dirhams, for which a jibaya, collection fee, of 6 dirhams was paid. (Information from Mediterranean Society, II, p. 488, App. C 45, dated first part of 13th century)
