Legal document T-S 13J3.13



Recto: Legal document. Dated: Adar 1448 Seleucid, which is 1137 CE. In the hand of Ḥalfon b. Menashshe, and signed by himself and Natan b. Shelomo ha-Kohen. Concerning a loan of 5 dinars from Abū Saʿīd Ḥalfon b. Elʿazar/Manṣūr to his wife Turfa bt. [...] al-ʿAsqalānī. Against a security (rahn) of a golden bracelet (siwār). Every month beginning from Adar II, she will pay 1/2 dinar at the end of the month. The loan was given on the day "they reconciled and renewed their betrothal (? taqdīs), namely the date of the ketubba between them." Verso: receipt of payment, and "to Abū Saʿīd al-Zajjāj." There are several other documents which seem to involve the same couple: T-S NS J468 (PGPID 8796), Moss. VII,116.1 (PGPID 35242), and Moss. VII,123 (PGPID 27010). (Information in part from CUDL and Goitein's index card.)
