Legal document. This fragment describes a partnership in a dyeing business between Efrayim b. Yaaqov al-Mawṣilī and Abraham b. Hiba al-Dimashqī. Efrayim, the owner of the shop, invests slightly more capital (nineteen dinars to Avraham’s seventeen dinars and five qirāṭs). Abraham is to manage the shop, and he is granted one dirham each day from partnership funds for his maintenance/ Efrayim seems to be granted a similar amount. Profits and losses are to be divided equally, though rental income from the shop itself goes to Efrayim, as he is the owner of the shop. (Information from Lieberman, "A Partnership Culture," 66)
