Legal document T-S K25.240.23



Bill submitted to Avraham Maimonides: the cantor 'al-Makīn' is owed 9 dirhams for 6 weeks, and Abū l-Ṭāhir is owed 1.5 dirhams for 3 weeks. Avraham Maimonides then wrote "the total: 7.5" and on verso "let it be paid from the rent of the compound." All this is on a reused scrap from an earlier Arabic-script document. T-S K25.240 consists of small written orders, partly in Hebrew and partly in Arabic script, for monthly payments, made out of the rent-revenue from the pious foundation (waqf) 'Compound of the Poor' or from the pious foundation made by the physician al-Muhadhdhab. All dated orders are from spring and summer, 1218.
