Bill of sale for a female slave. Dating: Perhaps second half of the 11th century or beginning of the 12th century, based on the hand. This is an unsigned draft (with additional legal jottings in the upper margin). T-S NS 320.15 appears to be the final version of the same document (though the lower part along with any signatures are missing, and that too may have been a draft). Seller: Ṣedaqa b. Moshe ha-Levi. Buyer: Yosef b. Shelomo. Slave: Tawfīq. Price: 25 dinars. (Information from OZ, AA, CP, ASE.)
