Legal testimony. Location: Qalyūb. Dating: 1205–37 CE, as the document is intended to reach Avraham Maimonides. The community asks the Nagid to reappoint Tamīm b. Yosef as the muqaddam (cantor, slaughterer, and teacher) of Qalyūb. They will pay him 8 dirhams a week "due to our poverty." Information in part from Goitein's notes.
