List of accounts and calculations in Judeo-Arabic related to the weight, value, and prices of "raisins / זביב" (l. 3r, 8r) and other goods. Given that gold sharifi coinage is in use, the fragment was drawn up post-1425 CE. An individual by the name of David Kohen is involved in the calculations on the recto, perhaps as a party to an associated transaction (l. 2r). All of these terms "weight / וזן", "value / קאים", and "price / סער" appear throughout the verso and on occasion verbal constructions with the root "צרפ / صرف" (l. 8r, 16r) appear that imply value calculations perhaps into "silver / פצה[?]" coinage (l. 13r). All of these figures are expressed alphanumerically. On the verso, the same hand continues accounts connected to a variety of individuals such as Yiṣḥaq b. al-Ashqar "אלאשקר" (l. 6-7v from left side of fragment), Meʾīr Saragosī "סראגוסי" (l. 8-9v), and Aharon b. al-Ashqar (l. 11-12v)– at least one of whom is traceable in dated sixteenth-century documents (R. Meʾīr Saragosī: T-S AS 202.414; Halper 368). In the calculations connected to these individuals, the general label "silver / פצה" (=medin) is used alongside the more specific designation of the gold "sharifi / שריפי" which was first minted under the Mamluk sultanate in 1425 CE (Pamuk, A Monetary History of the Ottoman Empire, 60).
