Legal document T-S 16.207


Recto: Court record dealing with inheritance. In the hand of the scribe Ḥalfon b. Menashshe ha-Levi. Dated: 1430 Seleucid = 1118/19 CE. Abū l-Barakāt b. Natan al-Jaʿfarī had received a power of attorney to claim a debt from ‘al-rayyis al-jalīl al-ʿajamī’ [Yiṣḥaq] b. Simḥa ha-Levi (al-Nīsābūrī). When the men left the city they deposited the deed of attorney with a man (Abū l-Makārim), and now his widow, Sitt al-Sāda bt. Evaytar ha-Kohen Gaʾon (mentioned in numerous other documents in the hand of Ḥalfon b. Menashshe) brings the document to the court and asks for assurances that she will not be liable for any claims made. On Abū l-Barakāt al-Jaʿfarī, see T-S 10J10.8 (PGPID 2784) and shelfmarks listed there. Reused on verso for accounts in the hand of Ḥalfon b. Menashshe as well as jottings in Judaeo-Arabic and Arabic script; see separate record. (Information in part from CUDL.)
