Court record in Arabic script, likely a draft. Concerning the inheritance of the late Sittāt bt. ʿAbdallāh. This document was probably drawn up in North Africa, based on paleographic considerations as well as the fact that verso was reused for the address of a letter from Nahray b. Natan to his cousin (ibn ʿamma) Nahray b. Nissim (who was originally from Qayrawān). The three lines at the bottom of recto are written in a different hand than the main document. The document contains an interesting glimpse into judicial archiving practices: "Subsequently the judge died and another judge assumed office. He examined the archive (dīwān) of the deceased (judge) and found that the money had been registered in it (l. 11). (Information from Goitein's index cards and from Khan.)
