Court record. This is a copy of the marriage contract (ketubba) between Shemuel b. Nissim ha-Kohen and Fāʾiza bt. Yūsuf, originally dated Tuesday, 2 Heshvan 1357 Seleucid = 15 October 1045 CE. The copy of the marriage contract is introduced with a statement that Fāʾiza came to the court and asked them to copy the marriage contract into the court ledger ('shimmush') so that it would serve as a proof, because she intends to send an agent to claim a bill of divorce and her muʾakhkhar (delayed marriage payment). Information from Goitein's note card.
